There's a Southland connection to this childhood memoir of an Irish Catholic girl struggling to connect with her enigmatic F.B.I. father.
Young Maura Conlon’s dad was a Hoover-era FBI agent in Los Angeles. Determined to infiltrate her father’s world, she is met with his stony silence. So Maura sets out to discover the Big Secrets on her own. But her fantasies turn sober with the birth of a Down Syndrome baby and a shattering murder in the family. Only then does she find the courage to confront her father using her new voice instead of his cryptic code.
The signing takes place Thursday night at 7:00 PM.
