I was a child writer-dreamer who never strayed far from that path. Today I’m the award-winning author of sixteen books—dreaming my way toward more by night, while running a boutique marketing communications firm by day. I'm privileged to teach creative nonfiction at the University of Pennsylvania in spring semesters. Always and most importantly, I am privileged to be a mom. Look for GOING OVER, my seventeenth book, from Chronicle next April. My work has been or is being translated into sixteen languages. All content Copyright 2007-2013 Beth Kephart Books.

Last evening, my husband, son, and I joined my father for a final meal at the club that has been part of the Kephart tradition for more than thirty years. All three Kephart children celebrated their weddings at Aronimink; my mother, brother, and sister celebrated their graduations there; my mother held an annual party for those who participated in her Great Decisions club; my mother's memorial lunch was held here. There were Easters and Fourth of Julys. There was, years ago, tennis, and sometimes I, better at the backhand than the forehand, even won.
But all good things do finally come to an end, and last night we raised our glasses to years spent and memories made.
