Mary Gordon, author of The Love of My Youth

Join renowned author Mary Gordon for a reading of her latest novel, The Love of Our Youth!

About the book:

Miranda and Adam, high-school sweethearts now in their late fifties, arrive by chance at the same time in Rome, a city where they once spent a summer deeply in love, living together blissfully. A story about what first love means and how it is shattered, and the lessons old lovers may still have to share with each other many years later, The Love of My Youth is also a poignant look back at the hopes and dreams of a generation and what became of them.
