Local author Fran Rybarik will be at the LaCrescent Public Library on Thursday September 24th at 7pm.
Reelling from the shock of finding his body, Fran Rybarik never imagined the unusual path her life would take, starting with her sons’ belief that their dad’s adventures weren’t over.
Ten years, 41,000 miles and 27 film canisters of David’s ashes later, she chronicles the effects of her husband’s post-life travels with an ever-growing circle of family and friends. As David’s adventures continue, Fran learns to remember him with joy, and eventually she begins to pursue her own pilgrimages.
This is not a “how to grieve in a year” book, but rather an inspirational story of loss without letting go. Using snippets of grief theory from her bereavement background, along with poetry, honesty and humor, Fran weaves her parallel journey of healing within the stories of Travels with David.
This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Fran will have books available for purchase.
