Laura McBride | We are Called to Rise

Join Laura McBride, for a reading and signing of her new book, We are Called to Rise.

Three lives are bound together by a split-second mistake, and a child's fate hangs in the balance. What happens next will test--and restore--your faith in humanity.
Far from the neon lights of the Vegas strip, three lives are about to collide. A middle aged woman attempting to revive her marriage. A returning soldier waking up in a hospital with no memory of how he got there. A very brave eight-year-old immigrant boy.
This is a story about families--the ones we have and the ones we make. It's a story about America today, where so many cultures and points of view collide and coexist. "We Are Called to Rise" challenges us to think about our responsibilities to each other and reminds us that no matter how cruel life can be in a given moment, it is ultimately beautiful to live, and live fully.
