Please join us for a conversation, reading, and signing with Sallie H. Weissinger celebrating her just released memoir, YES, AGAIN: (Mis)adventures of a Wishful Thinker.
“Sallie Weissinger celebrates her seventy-fifth birthday in Yes Again by taking the reader on a tour of her big heart and where that heart has taken her. This glorious story of a life lived in love is the perfect read because it’s hilarious, honest, and full of hope. We are all lovers, or we wish we were, and Sallie shows us how: never give up, occasionally give in, and don’t stop believing. Brava!”
—Adriana Trigiani, best-selling author of Tony's Wife
Tracking five decades of love and loss in her life, Weissinger recounts dark moments of losing those dearest to her, lighter moments of friendship and rewarding work, and periods of soul-searching, ultimately proving that it’s never too late to create a fulfilling life.
In this laughter-through-tears memoir, Sallie Weissinger, a late-in-life widow, recounts the highs and lows of navigating the tricky online dating world of the 2000s. Interwoven throughout her adventures in search of a new relationship are stories from her childhood as a military brat, her southern heritage, her various marriages, and the volunteer work in Central and South America that helped her keep moving forward through it all.
Weissinger keeps her sense of humor as she meets men who lie, men who try to extort money, and men with unsavory pasts. When she experiences even more loss, her search for a partner becomes less important, but—with the help of friends and dogs—she perseveres and, ultimately, develops her own approach to meeting “HIM.” Blending the deeply serious and the lighthearted, Yes Again shows us that good things happen when we open up our minds and hearts.
