Churdan library to host author Glenda Long Eggerling

The ComerThe Churdan library will host Scranton author Glenda Long Eggerling Thursday, May 14, at 9:30 am in the library.

Eggerling will share the story of her book The Comer: From Grief to Romance and Remarriage at Age 60 – A Widow’s Plunge into Bewilderment, Promise, and Pleasure.

When her husband of 40 years unexpectedly died, Glenda Long wasn’t just thrust into grief–she was hurled into modern singlehood.

In order to navigate relationships in 21st century style, she receives practical guidance from unexpected angels: a handsome hairdresser, a loving mother-in-law, a counselor in male/female communication, a support group of seasoned girlfriends, and advice on breaking up from her more experienced sister and daughter that she mostly chooses to not take.      

The Comer is a quirky coming-of-age story about someone who begins a quest for romance and deeper personal insight at the tender age of 60. Embedded in the narrative are tips for dating as a senior, handling grief and loneliness, setting goals for a new life, getting along with adult stepchildren, and writing a set of marital agreements that holds the tension on differences between the sexes. The Comer is a universal narrative of loss, growth, renewal, and the stretching of wings that a reader of any age or gender can appreciate,” the book jacket states.
