Finding Me Book Cover

Finding Me
by Kathryn Cushman

Saturday, September 17, at 3:00pm at the Morganton Public Library

Light refreshments will be served.

All her life, Kelli Huddleston has been told the story of a fire--a fire that killed her mother and two siblings when she was an infant. After her father's death though, she uncovers evidence of a different story, including clippings about a boat accident that killed a young father and his infant daughter. And Kelli quietly realizes the story of her life has been a fiction.
