Debut author Nadean Stone will discuss her memoir “No Stone Unturned: A Remarkable Journey to Identity” at Worthen Library on Friday, October 4, 2019 at 6:00 pm.
As heard on WCAX’s July 22 broadcast, Nadean‘s book is about the 44 year search for her birth parents and the role that DNA served in her quest.
“No Stone Unturned” a strong character driven memoir of a child presented with numerous exceptionally challenging life experiences. Nadean battled an aggressive form of cancer, experienced a harrowing escape from a Caribbean island, and suffered great losses that would break many a spirit. Yet as one reviewer noted “She soldiers on with unfailing courage.”
Nadean wrote No Stone Unturned: A Remarkable Journey To Identity with the intention of inspiring readers to find faith, hope and the courage to persevere against daunting personal challenges. She was born in Blind River ON, Canada, graduated from Windsor University with a BA and McMaster University with an MBA. She is a former NBC Booker and Celebrity Producer for a weekday one hour talk show in Miramar, FL.
On Wednesdays starting September 25th, 6pm to 7:30pm.
Join us at the Worthen Library to knit, sew, crochet, rug hook, or any fiber arts you care to do! All ages and skill levels welcome!
