NY Times Journalist, Eilene Zimmerman author of SMACKED: A STORY OF WHITE-COLLAR AMBITION, ADDICTION, AND TRAGEDY will be at the Westwood Library to read and discuss her work. 

“In this brave and suspenseful memoir, Eilene Zimmerman traces a deeply personal family story while illuminating urgent and troubling social issues. Smacked is an exquisite examination of the repercussions of addiction, as well as the influence of white-collar money and ambition, upon a family. A profoundly absorbing and important book.”—Adrienne Brodeur, author of Wild Game
