Sidewalk Signing with Brenda Johnson

Join us on Saturday, July 9th, for a sidewalk signing with author Brenda Johnson from 11 AM - 2 PM for her new book, Get Over It (maybe not all of it).

Brenda Johnson’s life was predictable until a sunny autumn Saturday when her husband said, “I’m not happy. I don’t know what that means, but I’m just not happy.” Her daughters grown and gone, Brenda was looking forward to more time with her husband. Stunned by his October surprise, she climbed on her bike and pedaled to the farmers market.

Life was normal when Brenda began to live alone. She moved into each day with music from the last, but sadness lingered too long for a reasonable divorce with no malice, theft, or slander. Weary of her own tears and tired of sadness, Brenda’s mantra became, “Get over it!” The stories in this memoir, both before and after divorce, are sprinkled with humor and sorrow, familiar to anyone who has experienced loss.

About the author: Brenda is a Montana native with a love of the Big Sky and a powerful sense of place. Today she hikes, bikes, skis, and gardens in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and visits Montana often. She likes to observe how people negotiate their lives, in and out of particular geographies, cultures, challenges, and rewards. Brenda finds no end to observing the rich human condition, complete with joys and sorrows, boredom and excitement, to illuminate her own.
