Event Details

Author Maggie Redmon will be at Barnes & Noble Oglethorpe Mall (7804 Abercorn Extension #72, Savannah, GA 31406) on Saturday, June 8, from 1-4 p.m. to sign her debut memoir, Trials of a Dead Lawyer’s Wife: A TRUE STORY.

In Trials of a Dead Lawyer’s Wife, Redmon embarks on a quest for truth and justice after her disbarred husband Scott changed his will mere hours before he died and bequeathed half a million dollars to his girlfriend. In living and telling this story, she brings to bear the knowledge and experience acquired in her 26-year career as a disability examiner and professional counselor, and her decade as a civil court mediator. The story is set in Georgia.

“This is a true, character-driven cold case story in the vein of ‘20/20,’ ‘Dateline,’ and ‘48 Hours,’” Redmon said. “It happened to me, and I wrote this book as a way to heal from this very traumatic period in my life. I want readers to know that regardless of whatever life throws at them, they should not give up on what’s right and true!”

Patrick Piciarelli, author of Hollywood Godfather, said “Trials of a Dead Lawyer’s Wife: A True Story reads like a good murder mystery novel, but it’s a true story of a woman on a mission to solve her husband’s mysterious death. Over the course of many years, and with a determined effort to uncover the truth, her story will hold you spellbound.”

Maggie (better known as Kathleen McGuire) is a four-time finalist for the William Faulkner-William Wisdom Creative Nonfiction Prize. Her essays have appeared in Reed magazine, the Briar Cliff Review, Athens magazine, and the Sycamore Review, where she was a double finalist for the Wabash Prize for Nonfiction. A native Georgian, she now lives and writes on Tybee Island. Her second book will explore growing up in the shadow of her charismatic father’s severe bipolar disorder.
