Carnegie To Host Writer Event

Posted: Tue, July 7, 2015

Like many of her classmates from the NHHS class of 1969, Cecilia Eichenberger looked forward to wherever her own path might take her in life. Now, 40 plus years later, that path has provided the basis for a memoir-based novel, Fallen Far from the Tree.  Using the penname Lilith Giardini, the chronicle follows Cecilia's life path through an intentional community in the U.S. where she meets her future husband and several years in Italy before her return to "normal" life in the States where she undertakes the self-imposed challenge of writing her novel.
 
Currently employed as a grants research specialist at Duke University, Cecilia is self-educated when it comes to writing fiction. Fallen Far from the Tree was in the works for about 20 years and went through many re-writes before, as Cecilia notes, she published it "just to be done with it and move onto something new." Her next project is to write the story of her mother, Lois Eichenberger¸ and, at some future date, another book about her love/hate relationship with the art of writing.
 
The Carnegie Cultural Center will host Eichenberger for a book reading and signing on Sunday, July 26 from 1:30 - 3:30 pm. Cecilia will also lead a Q&A discussion about the book as well as the process and rewards of self publishing. Books will be available for purchase at the event or can be found on Amazon.com.  The event is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served.
 
The Carnegie Cultural Center is located at 7 N. Water Ave. in New Hampton. For more information about the event, contact the Carnegie Cultural Center at 641.394.2354 or email: carnegiecc@yahoo.com
