Book Signing with Brianna Madia:  Nowhere for Very Long

Brianna Madia will be signing her debut memoir Nowhere for Very Long at Back of Beyond Books on Friday, April 15, 2022 between 4-7 pm. There will be limited number of people permitted into the store at at any given time and masks are highly recommended. This event is free and open to the public.

NOWHERE FOR VERY LONG is the chronicle of a woman learning and unlearning, from backroads to breakdowns, married to solo, and finally, from lost to found.

On the surface, NOWHERE FOR VERY LONG: The Unexpected Road to an Unconventional Life (on sale April 5, 2022; $26.99; HarperOne) is Brianna Madia's life story: buying a van she named Bertha, filling it with her three dogs Bucket, Dagwood, and Birdie, venturing out into the canyons of Utah and the deserts of Nevada, and what she discovered along the way. But if you go back a bit further, and start at the beginning, Brianna's is the story of a movement.

A young woman rejecting the competitive and capitalistic path set out for her and choosing a truer version of happiness, one that is scary and uncertain and entirely her own. That doesn’t mean it was easy—in fact, it was terribly difficult, boring, and lonely at times when the van overheated, when the weather was excruciating, when she was stressed about money and her future—but it was a life of her choosing and that made all the difference.
