Bomb Shelter: Love, Time, and Other Explosives

Mary Laura Philpott, the Nashville-residing Davidson grad and bestselling author of I Miss You When I Blink, delivers a moving new memoir filled with thoughtful, compelling essays. A lifelong worrier and optimist in equal parts, Philpott explores powerful life truths like how we can’t protect those closest to us, no matter how fierce our love. One of Philpott’s strengths as a writer is her seamless and easy rapport with her readers, which makes reading this book feel a lot like catching up with an old friend. So kick back, relax, and get ready to laugh and cry in the same sitting.
