Handling the Truth is featured in Library Journal's Nonfiction Previews

Monday, February 18, 2013

Gary Kramer, beloved publicist for my river book Flow: The Life and Times of Philadelphia's Schuylkill River (Temple University Press) as well as the forthcoming Dr. Radway's Sarsaparilla Resolvent, just sent word that Library Journal kindly featured Handling the Truth in its Nonfiction Previews for August 2013.

I am so happy to have this book of mine be placed among other true memoirs. I'm so grateful to Barbara Hoffert, who wrote:
Not a memoir proper, this book fits nicely with the others on this list because it’s about writing memoir. Kephart has penned five.... She’s also mastered the fiction and essay forms and currently teaches memoir writing at the University of Pennsylvania, so she’s got the skills to explain every facet of the writing process, including that crucial issue for memoirists: where does imaginative shaping stop and disregard for truth begin.
