April 28, 2016 (St. Louis, MO) – Authors John Lipscomb and Adrianne Lugo announced today that they will be at Left Bank Books in St. Louis, MO on May 18, 2016 at 7:00PM to do a book signing for their memoir, The Painting and the Piano.
“We are especially excited to have a signing and meet with readers at Left Bank Books since more than half of our book takes place in St. Louis,” says John Lipscomb.
Growing up more than a thousand miles apart and worlds away from each other, Johnny and Adrianne seemed to have all that a child could ask for. However, the demons of their respective mothers would tear their young, fragile lives apart.
Told as a tandem narrative, Adrianne and Johnny pass their respective stories of childhood trauma and abuse, addiction, healing, and final triumph of love back and forth in alternating chapters. Their stories are unique, but share parallels that create a taut and emotionally compelling narrative.
Filled with hope, inspiration and humor, The Painting and the Piano is an unforgettable story of pain, loss and the undying human quest for happiness.
“A vivid, moving account of addiction, trauma, and hard-won triumph by two survivors.” – Kirkus Reviews
“Although it is a non-fiction memoir, the book reads much like a novel: intense and at points, almost unbelievable.” – Red City Reviews
“Any reader who enjoys a great work of non-fiction, an autobiography, or a story of redemption and triumph in the face of great odds and a difficult history, should absolutely read The Painting and The Piano.” – Readers’ Favorite
