Jennifer Lauck: Found: A Memoir

Carson City Library
at the

postponed to 2012

Due to the Reno fire, Jennifer Lauck's reading with the Carson City Library has been postponed to 2012. Watch the Library's website and the CCAI blog for the rescheduled date.

In recognition of National Adoption Month, Carson City Library will host author Jennifer Lauck on Friday, November 18, 6pm, at the Business Resource Innovation Center [BRIC], 108 East Proctor Street, Carson City.

Jennifer Lauck is the New York Times bestselling author of Blackbird, now translated into 22 languages and published in 29 countries. Lauck has also written Still Waters, Show Me the Way, and Found, released earlier this year and considered the true sequel to Blackbird. Her personal journey began in Carson City and is about perseverance, courage, and the remarkable capacity of humans to transcend the worst of losses with grace. In Found, Lauck reunites with her birthmother, who lived in Reno. Lauck writes of the complex journey home to her original family and the impact her adoption has had on her life.

Lauck is an award winning investigative reporter and earned her MFA in creative writing from Pacific Lutheran University. She lives in Portland, Oregon, is the mother of two children, and runs a writing program for burgeoning memoir writers. For more information, visit
