Jamaica Plain resident Carl Scovel will read on Zoom from his recently published book, I Do: Quotes on Marriage from the Married, the Unmarried and Me.
This program is sponsored by the Jamaica Plain Branch. To register and receive the Zoom link for this author talk, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with Scovel in the subject line.
This small collection of quotations is arranged as a narrative, which begins with someone asking questions about marriage and concludes with someone looking at survival without their partner. Between these two bookends lie the whole range of issues—searching, deciding, marrying, getting to know each other, deciding about children, facing divorce, the best and worst of marriage, and dealing with aging, illness and loss.
