Book Launch for Playing with Dynamite: A Memoir by Sharon Harrigan

Sharon Harrigan’s father was larger than life, a brilliant, but troubled man who blew off his hand with dynamite before she was born and died in a mysterious accident when she was seven. His death never made sense, but she knew that asking about it was dangerous. Playing with Dynamite is about a daughter who goes looking for her father but finds her mother instead. It’s about the slipperiness of memory, the necessity of grief, and what it means to go home again.
