Kimberly Childs will visit City Lights Bookstore on Saturday, October 7th at 3 p.m. to present her book, Remember Me as Loving You. In this colorful memoir, Kimberly Childs quests for the love and home her glamorous, alcoholic mother is unable to provide. Jeanne Gibson is a mountain woman with unusual charisma--a real-life Holly Golightly--who marries Broadway's meanest producer, David Merrick, and proceeds to self-destruct. Bounced from place to place, Childs grows up in Lady Eden's English boarding school, London's prestigious Savoy Hotel, a Kentucky farm with an outhouse, a Manhattan private girls' school, and amidst Broadway's theaters.
Seeking connection on the streets and in the communes of 1960s San Francisco, Childs discovers serenity through meditation and the Dances of Universal Peace. Aspiring for transformation, she finds home in an Indian Guru's ashram--then realizes she must trust her own instincts and courageously walks away. A touching story of compassion and forgiveness, Remember Me As Loving You is a compelling read that will be an inspiration to anyone who has found themselves betrayed by the people they love.
