Katherine Rosman’s “If You Knew Suzy”

Saturday, July 24 @ 7:30 p.m.
Rural Intelligence Arts
When Wall Street Journal culture reporter Katherine Rosman lost her mother, aged 60, to cancer, she did what most of us do in the throes of grief, she obsessed on the deceased.  But unlike most everyone else, Rosman had the skills and the means to use this near-mad single-mindedness creatively.  Embarking on a cross-country odyssey, she spent a year investigating the life of a woman she only knew as a parent, attempting to fill in the blanks that might explain her mother’s actions, both in life and when facing death.  A moving and heartfelt memoir, If You Knew Suzy: A Mother, A Daughter, and a Reporter’s Notebook is at once comforting, candid, and very funny.
