Memoirist Abigail Thomas to Give Reading at Ithaca College

ITHACA, NY—The Distinguished Visiting Writers Series at Ithaca College will host a reading by acclaimed memoirist Abigail Thomas on Wednesday, March 2, at 7:30 p.m. in Clark Lounge, Egbert Hall. It is free and open to the public.

Thomas is the author of the best-selling “A Three Dog Life,” in which she wrote about the tragic loss of her husband. It was named one of the best books of 2006 by both the Los Angeles Times and Washington Post and honored with the 2006 Inspirational Memoir Award, given by Books for A Better Life. In her most recent book, “What Comes Next and How to Like It,” she writes about aging, family, creativity, tragedy, friendship and the richness of life.

Thomas has also authored three books of fiction — “Getting Over Tom,” “An Actual Life” and “Herb’s Pajamas.” She currently lives in Woodstock, New York, where she paints when she isn’t writing.
