With her husband in the grave, 78-year-old Harriet Chance embarks on an ill-conceived Alaskan cruise only to discover that she's been living the past 60 years under false pretenses. Once on board, Harriet learns that her husband had never intended to share the voyage with her; he was planning on traveling with another woman...her best friend. A bittersweet portrait of a postmodern everywoman. Books will be for sale and the event will conclude with a book signing. Registration is not required.
