"Meet the Author" EVENT!

Long time friends of Deborah Marqui are showing their support and respect for the wonderful gift she has given us in her beautifully written memoir, 

From the Fire into the Garden: A Healing Journey

Debbie will be present as well as the illustrator, Kathy McPartland and the cover designer, Stacy Amoo-Mensah to meet with you and answer questions about the book, the writing process, and the "story" within the story.  

Please join us where the story all began:
on Sunday, July 28, 2019, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
At HEALING GARDENS, 37W249 Dean St., St. Charles, 60175


There will be an informal period from 3 to 4 p.m. to visit and experience the gardens. From 4 to 5 p.m. there will be a short talk and a question and answer period followed by an opportunity to have Deborah sign your books. Please RSVP to one of the addresses below so we can get an idea of how many to plan for.  We will provide a number of chairs but feel free to bring a blanket to sit on the lawn or a sports chair or lawn chair. We look forward to meeting you and sharing our love for Debbie's book! 
Please feel free to forward this to anyone you think would also be interested in attending.

The memoir is available through Amazon for $15 or may be purchased at this event for $12. Buy the Book!

"This book exemplifies the fullness of life itself.  Picking it up, wishing for a page turner, expecting a cancer journey would not be, then reading nonstop until midnight..."
