Coffee and Conversation with Liz Duren

  • Buxton Books 160 King Street Charleston, SC, 29401 United States (map)

It all started with a picture: When Duren was 10 years old she realized that a family photo didn’t look, so, well, familiar. In her book, Duren writes, “What I saw was me, standing out, next to three people who looked so much like each other. My pale skin and blue eyes were a stark contrast to the darker skinned, brown-eyed people with me.”

Right then and there Duren, half-jokingly, asked her parents if she was adopted. They quickly shut her down — and she realized something was up. This was something she wouldn’t have confirmed until she was 15 years old, when her parents told her that, yes, she was adopted. That’s when the journey to find her birth mother began. “All my life it was this longing and searching and every little nugget I could get my hands on,” says Duren.

Join us on Saturday, May 25th for coffee and conversation with Liz Duren's about her memoir- turned play, ALL ABOUT YOU. This event is free and open to all!
