The Friends of the Lane Memorial Library will be hosting Boston author Roseann Sdoia on Thursday, January 30th at 6:30 PM as she reflects on her experiences during the Boston Marathon bombing. As recounted in her book Perfect Strangers: Friendship, Strength, and Recovery After Boston's Worst Day, Roseann was one of the bystanders severely injured by the blast, and yet tells an inspriing story about recovery, about choosing joy and human connection over anger and resentment, and most of all, about an unlikely and enduring friendship that grew out of tragedy. Additional information.
