Philly Author Beth Kephart Releases New Memoir

Beth Kephart, the Devon-based author of A Slant of Sun and Small Damages, is back with a new memoir, Nest. Flight. Sky.: On love and loss, one wing at a time. Kephart dropped everything to write Nest, a story about adjusting to her mother’s death that ties into her ever-deepening obsession with birds.

Nest is published by Shebooks, an initiative publishing short memoirs, fiction, essays and long-form journalism written for women in eBook form. The brief memoir is available through both Kindle and Nook for $2.99.

Kephart teaches memoir writing at University of Pennsylvania. Her book, Flow: The Life and Times of Philadelphia’s Schuylkill River, was recently ordered into a new print run.
