Mary Ladd, author of The Wig Diaries, will host a book signing and author talk at Alibi Bookshop. The Wig Diaries is Mary Ladd’s debut disrespectful cancer book, delivered with bold gallows humor to intimately address the gravity of cancer, invites the reader to bear witness to both the horror and the joke(s). Armed with humor and creative sensibility, Ladd robs her diagnosis of its dour weightiness. Refusing to tiptoe around the gnarlier elements of treatment and recovery, the narrative is powerful in its unvarnished honesty. Infused with a contagious lust for life and exemplified by hilarious anecdotes.
