Abrams Press: The Anna Karenina Fix: Life Lessons from Russian Literature by Viv Groskop

Nonnie Thompson at Country Bookshelf


On an icy Rocky Mountain highway, the winter sun was setting on a teenage girl hitchhiking alone. Nonnie Thompson had run away from her parents' home yearning for the freedom and wildness of a pioneer wagon train. Fortunately for her, she was coming of age in the 1970s amidst a cultural revolution. By that evening she found the new life she was looking for in a Colorado commune, surrounded by a group of people who shared her ideals.

Join us on Thursday, July 26th at 6pm to hear Nonnie Thompson share stories from her new memoir. Time It Was captures the youthful enthusiasm of those years while tracing the joys and sorrows of a woman who lived them deeply. 

Nonnie Thompson is a woman of many lives, all of them tied closely to the land and sea. She began her writing career on a 15,000-mile sailing voyage, and her passion for expression grew with each adventure.
