Judy Reeves's recently released memoir, When Your Heart Says Go, tells the story of a solo, around-the-world journey she took a few years after her husband died. The journey itself took place thirty years before the story about it was published. Why did it take thirty years to get from there to here? Why do some stories appear suddenly and others take decades to find their way? These are some of the questions we’ll explore in “The Long and Winding Road from Moments to Memoir.”
