CANCELED - Racing Time: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Liberation

Join author Patrick Smithwick as he recounts the creation of Racing Time—the third in his trilogy—gives an intimate view into his work, and reads favorite passages. Racing Time is a memoir of searing intensity shining a healing light into the wounds of loss. Smithwick celebrates his life-long friendships with three men and explores the grief of delivering the eulogies, within a nine-month period, on these three who had been his nexus to the world of steeplechasing and Thoroughbred racing. Racing Time is about breaking through the initial shock of loss and prevailing over the demoralization and paralysis of grief.


Don’t miss out on your chance to speak with the author and learn more about what it means for him to complete the trilogy of Racing My Father, Flying Change, and Racing Time.
