Win a Copy of "The Day That Went Missing" by Richard Beard
About "The Day That Went Missing"
"In 1978, a family took a vacation to the coast of England. One of the family’s four sons drowned and the family never really spoke of the day or the boy again.
In this well-written, deeply felt book the author attempts to reconstruct the events of the day, the ripples it caused, and the still-forming personality of his little brother. But how can an accurate portrait be completed when everyone’s memories and stories disagree? For fans of "Educated: A Memoir" and "Fun Home"."
