Kimberly A. Starr Book Reading

On the first day, Kimberly A. Starr’s world fell apart. On the 54th, she realized even just eating was an uphill struggle. On the 85th, she celebrated her son’s birthday—even though he was no longer with her. On the 264th day, she tried to make it through Christmas—the first without her son. On the 377th, she started thinking about her own healing process. On the 432nd, she started to let go. 457 Days is Starr’s candid chronicle of these trying, life-altering days and every day in between, starting her journey on the 54th day after her son Tom died by suicide, recording her powerful emotions, relating cherished memories of her son, and expressing regret at the many ways he would never get to experience life. Starr’s work is an intimate portrait of grief and anguish that will touch anyone with a loved one suffering from mental illness and suicidal ideation. At the same time, it is a celebration of her son’s life and legacy—ensuring that Tom will not be remembered solely for the mode of his death. Starr recounts an entire life of wonderful memories and unforgettable experiences—and her own journey toward acceptance and peace. Join local author Kimberly A. Starr for a public reading and book signing of her first book, 457 Days: A Mother’s Journey Along Grief’s Path on Saturday, May 12, 2018, at 10:00 AM at the Grandview Public Library (500 West Main Street, Grandview). Please use the 2nd Street entrance. Starr will read passages from the book and answer attendees’ questions. Copies of the book will be available for purchase. Starr will also sign book copies, whether purchased at this event or through other vendors.
