Etched in Sand by Regina Calcaterra
New York Times bestselling author, Regina Calcaterra, author of Etched in Sand: a True Story of Five Siblings Who Survived an Unspeakable Childhood on Long Island will be speaking at the Islip Public Library on Tuesday, April 28th at 7:00PM!

In this real-life rags-to-riches story, a tenacious lawyer, state official and activist recounts her childhood in foster homes and on the streets with her four siblings, revealing a life of horrible abuse in the shadows between Manhattan and the Hamptons. -Publisher Summary 

"Calcaterra narrates her story in the present tense, which adds a painful immediacy and urgency to an already gut-wrenching account. Yet never once does she flinch from the terrible truths with which she has lived and so courageously reveals here. Riveting reading from start to finish." - Kirkus Reviews
