    Thu., Oct. 19, 7 p.m.

    When author Sarah Perry was 12, her mother was murdered in their home. After authorities caught and prosecuted the killer more than a decade later, Perry began her own investigation into her mother’s life and the social biases behind gender-based violence. The result is her memoir, After the Eclipse: A Mother’s Murder, A Daughter’s Search, released in September. As Publishers Weekly puts it, “Perry’s memoir is a testament to one child’s ability to survive the unspeakable, one woman’s ability to recapture what was lost and a fascinating small-town mystery with breathtaking revelations at the end.” The author appears in conversation with Woodstock-based writer Julia Cooke. at Mon Vert Café in Woodstock. Upper Valley (map). Free.
