Price: free

Sally Ryder Brady reads from her new book and we play a few songs about relationships.

“A Box of Darkness by Sally Ryder Brady offers a compelling story of love—one of hard truths, tender affection, and an indomitable spirit. Throughout a long marriage this wife enjoyed the wit and intelligence of her husband. She marveled at his capabilities, but she also lived with his attraction to men and his alcoholism, while dreading the rage that could occur during his haze of heavy drink. The story winds back and forth through painful moments and glorious days with this couple and their four children. Brady’s precise and evocative writing keeps you turning the pages, as she reveals a true love story, one you won’t forget. You’ll find here an endurance and compassion that staggers the mind.”
—Elizabeth Cox, bestselling author of The Slow Moon
