Reading tonight: Nicole Burton, Swimming Up the Sun: A Memoir of Adoption

Nicole BurtonTonight at Broadway Books, Nicole J. Burton reads from Swimming Up the Sun (Apippa Publishing Co., 193 pages, $14.95), her engrossing memoir about setting out to find her English birth parents at the age of 22. The detective story itself is fascinating, with frequent flashes of humor, but what happens after Burton makes contact with her biological parents is the heart of this wrenching, rewarding account of re-finding and redefining family.

Burton is in town for the American Adoption Congress conference "Adoption in the Global Community: Redefining Kinship in the 21st Century."
