Author Visit: Sandra Gail Lambert

At this event, author, Sandra Gail Lambert, will be reading from her newly published memoir, A Certain Loneliness.

"A Certain Loneliness is a meditative and engaging memoir-in-essays that explores the intersection of disability, queerness, and female desire with frankness and humor.” 

Besides writing memoir, Sandra Gail Lambert writes "fiction that is often about the body and its relationship to the natural world. She is a 2018 NEA Creative Writing Fellow, and her work has been widely anthologized and published in journals such as The Southern Review, DIAGRAM, and Hippocampus." 

As stated by Michele Sharpe, in an interview for Saw Palm, a Florida art and literature journal, Lambert's work  "draws from Florida's nature while giving back to it through close observation and celebration of the unique settings, flora and fauna of the region. Just as literature can help readers identify with those unlike themselves, Lambert's stories and essays can help readers achieve a reverence for the rich and often exotic life that permeates Florida's prairies, swamps, and rivers." 

She is co-editor of the anthology Older Queer Voices: The Intimacy of SurvivalThe River's Memory (Twisted Road/2014) is her debut novel.

Sandra lives with her wife in Gainesville, Florida-- a home base for trips to her beloved rivers and marshes.

This event will take place on, December 9, at 2 p.m., in Meeting Room A, at the Headquarters Branch

There will be an opportunity to purchase books at the end of the event.
