LEFT COAST WRITERS BOOK LAUNCH: Married at Fourteen: A True Story, by Lucille Lang Day Saturday, December 8th, 2012 || 7pm Book Passage-Corte Madera|| 51 Tamal Vista Dr. Corte Madera || www.bookpassage.com Poet and writer Lucille Lang Day‘s new memoir Married at Fourteen: A True Story tells her story, as the title says, of getting married at fourteen, of being a young mother, going back to school and growing up both physically and psychologically into the woman that she is today. ”Day gives eloquent voice to the teenager she once was–precocious, beautiful, hungry for love and adventure, disrespectful of conventions, adept at getting into serious trouble. Her memoir is sexy, funny and endearingly honest…It challenges the conventional wisdom that a teenage mom and dropout has no future and reminds us that rebellious kids who defy authority may become–as has Day–the innovators and creators that our culture needs.” -Naomi Ruth Lowinsky, Ph.D., M.F.T., author of The Motherline
