Catherine Madison, author of The War Came Home with Him: A Daughter's Memoir, will be at the Columbia Heights Library on Tuesday, February 23rd, at 6;30 PM for a talk and book signing.
Catherine Madison tells the stories of two survivors of one man’s war: a father who withstood a prison camp’s unspeakable
inhumanity and a daughter who withstood the residual cruelty that came home with him. Madison pieces together her father’s past and returns to a childhood troubled by his secret torment to consider, in a new light, their complex relationship.
"In this beautifully written dual memoir, Madison smoothly moves between chapters re-creating her father’s terrible imprisonment and her childhood. " —St. Paul Pioneer Press
