Back in 2008, author Kelly Corrigan rocketed into the spotlight with the release of her first bestselling memoir, which revolved around her and her father’s concurring bouts with cancer. Now Corrigan is back with another tale of trials and lessons gleaned in her new memoir, Glitter and Glue. Chronicling her time spent as a nanny when she was 24, the author, now 46, relates the experience to her relationship with her mother and their reconciliation after years of tension. Down-to-earth and easily accessible, Corrigan has been praised for her warmth and humor, which she shares when she reads from Glitter and Glue on Wednesday, March 5, at Angelico Hall, Dominican University. 50 Acacia Ave., San Rafael. 7pm. (Presented by Book Passage.) $32 includes signed book. 415.927.0960.
