An Afternoon Book Discussion with Amy Nawrocki at Byrd's Books 

Join us at Byrd's Books for a very special book discussion on Sunday June 3rd at 3:00pm with author Amy Nawrocki as we discuss her new book, "A Comet's Tail: A Memoir of No Memory".

About the book:

"I do not remember the tubes, the tests, or the icy cold of space. I do not remember losing six months of my life."

At age nineteen, Amy Nawrocki returned from her first year of college, scribbled a few notes in her journal, and took a terrifying summer trip. She remembers one night of disorientation, then nothing until Christmas, when awareness slowly restarts. The Comet’s Tail is the story of these missing months: the seizures and fever spikes, the deep nothing of coma, and the unexpected, dramatic recovery. Memory is recreated around EEG transcripts and doctors’ notes, family vigils and blurry Polaroids. From her unique perspective, Nawrocki investigates the connections between memory, trauma, and identity. She illuminates what it means to truly return to consciousness in this extraordinary memoir of illness, healing, and writing over the blank pages of our lives.
