Poor Your Soul
Author Reading/Signing

Thursday, May 19, at 7:00 pm
Location: Peaks Island Branch Library Community Room MiraPtacin
Audience: Adults and Seniors

Peaks Islander Mira Ptacin will talk and read from her book, Poor Your Soul. At age twenty-eight,  Mira discovered she was pregnant. Though it was unplanned, she soon embraced the pregnancy and became engaged to Andrew, the father. Five months later, an ultrasound revealed birth defects that would give the child no chance of survival outside the womb. Mira’s story is woven together with the story of her mother, who emigrated from Poland (also at the age of twenty-eight) and whose adopted son, Julian died tragically. Poor Your Soul is a beautiful examination of free will, love, and the fierce bonds of family. Sponsored by Friends of the Peaks Island Branch Library.
