Lake Norman Writers to Celebrate the Release of Connie Fisher’s Memoir

by | Mar 24, 2024

Please join Lake Norman Writers on Tuesday, March 26th from 6-8 p.m. at the Armour Street Theater
to celebrate the release of her new memoir, The Mongrel.


In Connie Carmona Fisher’s memoir, The Mongrel, Bi-cultural Adventures of a Latina-Scandinavian Youth, a summertime trip to Mexico at the onset of World War II changed the course of the Carmona family. Instead of returning to their home in California, eight-year-old Connie and her family remained undocumented in the Mexican capital where she grew up to experience a bi-cultural life in two languages.

The eldest daughter of a South American father from Chile and a mother born of Finnish immigrants, Connie’s story reveals her universal, ongoing search to identify a place where she belongs.

Connie is a Davidson resident and has been writing theatre reviews for many years. She is the author of Doing It the Right Way, the biography of an Italian hatmaker, and her prose appears with 87 other international writers in The Widows’ Handbook. She is an active, founding member of Lake Norman Writers.

(The Editors of News of Davidson also celebrate Connie, our talented theater reviewer, in the release of her memoir. Congratulations, Connie!)
