AuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary continues with Norris Church Mailer

| No Comments
Norris Mailer newer credit Pabst.jpgNorris Church Mailer will share her beautifully written, deeply personal memoir A Ticket to the Circus on Tuesday, May 4, at 7 p.m., in the Cole Auditorium as part of the AuthorsLive series at Greenwich Library.

A Ticket to the Circus.jpgShe was born in a tiny Arkansas town and became a model, an actress, a painter and a writer. In the 1970s she dated a little-known, aspiring politician named Bill Clinton. She later went on to marry Norman Mailer, a pioneer in American literature, and stayed married to him for more than 30 years. She faced down ex-wives and lovers by the dozen; she became mother, stepmother and grandmother to an ever-growing brood. Mailer depicts the full evolution of her marriage, from the white-hot beginning through the very rocky patches to the mournful ending.

Mailer, now a Brooklyn resident, is the author of two previous books, Windchill Summer and Cheap Diamonds.

Just Books will provide copies of the book, which will be available for purchase and signing at the event. AuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary, our ongoing author series, is free and open to the public. For more information, please call Marianne Weill at (203) 622-7933.
