Author Bridget Park will be signing copies of her book, “Growing Young: A Memoir of Grief,” at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the lobby of the St. Gall Pastoral Center in Gardnerville.

“Having grown up close by, this is a special ‘homecoming’ of sorts, and I would be delighted to see you all there,” Bridget said.

The Bishop Manogue High School senior wrote of her journey through the grieving process following the 2008 suicide of her brother Austin, 14. Bridget was 12 when her brother died. At the time, the Park family was living in Smith Valley.

She is bringing 200 copies of her book for sale. At a recent event in Reno, she ran out, and wants to make sure that everyone who wants a copy has an opportunity to have one.

Bridget said she would be happy to sign copies that people already purchased.

She encouraged all her old friends to stop by and visit.

Copies of the book are $10. It is also available on
