In "The Lampblack Blue of Memory: My Mother Echoes," author Sarah Adleman employs a mix of literary techniques as tools that dig to the heart of tragedy and explore the concept of forgiveness

Book Excerpts

Sarah Adleman’s literary journey included a white board, a Death Row letter and a long train ride

She never set out to write her memoir, but says, "The gift of this book is that it quietly waited to be noticed and then stepped forth and allowed me to create a space for it to be heard."
