An Afternoon with Judy Goldman

March 16 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Main Street Books – 126 S. Main Street

Charlotte Writers’ Club North and Main Street Books are pleased to host author Judy Goldman, an award-winning writer who has contributed to Real Simple and The Washington Post and whose new memoir, Together, offers a nuanced portrait of a marriage tested. When Judy Goldman’s husband of almost four decades reads a newspaper ad for an injection to alleviate back pain, the outpatient procedure sounds like the answer to his longtime backaches. But rather than restoring his tennis game, the procedure leaves him paralyzed from the waist down–a phenomenon none of the doctors the family consults can explain. Overnight, Goldman’s world is turned upside down. Though she has always thought of herself as the polite, demure wife opposite her strong, brave husband, Goldman finds herself thrown into a new role as his advocate, navigating byzantine hospital policies, demanding and refusing treatments, seeking solutions to help him win back his independence. Along the way, Goldman flashes back to her memories of their life together. As she tries envision her family’s future, she discovers a new, more resilient version of herself. Together is a story of the life we imagine versus the life we lead–an elegant and empathetic meditation on partnership, aging, and, of course, love.
