Kansas’ Poet Laureate Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg has joined the ranks of novel writers with the publication of The Divorce Girl.

In Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg's debut novel The Divorce Girl, readers are invited to look at divorce through the eyes of Deborah, a teenager who is an unwilling witness to her parents' divorce and new lives. The divorce of this average couple in the New Jersey suburbs during the 1970s propels Deborah to the biggest flea market in the free world, a Greek diner with immigration issues, a New York City taxi company, a radical suburban synagogue, and a hippie-owned boutique. The Divorce Girl combines humor, sadness, and the many faces of love while recording the transformation of a broken girl into a strong woman.

And the debut of The Divorce Girl in Lawrence will be at 7:30 pm on Saturday, July 14, at the Jewish Community Center, 917 Highland Drive. Check out for more information. Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg is also featured in a post in the Women On Writing blog with a very long link address (I hope this works.) GO HERE. You'll want to read this.

Caryn will be the keynote speaker at the Kansas Authors Club annual convention, October 5-7 in Salina. For more about Caryn’s appearance and other convention news see
