Hartford Courant Notes Lili Wright's New Book and Tour

June 25, 2002

June 25, 2002, Greencastle, Ind. - "Lili Wright, a former journalist who teaches at DePauw University, will sign copies of her book Learning to Float: The Journey of a Woman, a Dog and Just Enough Men (Broadway Books, $22.95) Monday [June 24] from noon to 1 p.m. at Bookworm, 968 Farmington Ave., West Hartford," the Hartford Courant's Book Editor Carole Goldberg wrote in Sunday's edition of the Connecticut newspaper.

The article continued, "Wright, a former West Hartford resident who has written for the New York Times and the Baltimore Sun, based the book on her experiences as a thirtysomething writer in a complicated relationship with two men. She borrows a dog and takes off on a road trip from Maine to Key West, searching for reasons why her relationships, like her journey, keep going south. She meets such characters as a vegan astrologer and a woman who marries herself. With humor, the book explores love's misfires and inevitable trade- offs."
