    David Swain, editor of Thomas Dring's Recollections of Life on the Prison Ship Jersey

    In conversation with Norman Ryan from the Fort Greene Park Conservancy

    Co-hosted by the Fort Greene Park Conservancy

    In one of the darkest moments of the American Revolutionary War, captured American soldiers were jailed on British prison ships in the East River (current site of the Brooklyn Navy Yard) where cruel and unhealthy conditions led to the ignominious deaths of thousands. Their remains were eventually collected and entombed in the Prison Ship Martyrs Monument in our own Fort Greene Park. In 1824, survivor Thomas Dring wrote a firsthand account of conditions aboard the Prison Ships, and his manuscript is now published in its entirety for the first time, with notes by historian David Swain. Swain reads from the book and talks about the manuscript and the surrounding events with Norman Ryan from the Fort Greene Park Conservancy, the organization that helps maintain the park and the monument. The Conservancy’s Chairman Charles Jarden will introduce the event with a few words about this charitable organization and the park, and a percentage of sales of Dring’s Recollections at Greenlight Bookstore will benefit the Conservancy.

    A moving and insightful debut novel of great friendship interrupted. Can the relationship survive when the memories are gone?

    Marissa Rogers never wanted to be an alpha; beta suited her just fine. Taking charge without taking credit had always paid off: vaulting her to senior editor at a glossy magazine; keeping the peace with her critical, weight-obsessed mother; and enjoying the benefits of being best friends with gorgeous, charismatic, absolutely alpha Julia Ferrar.

    And then Julia gets hit by a cab. She survives with minor obvious injuries, but brain damage steals her memory and alters her personality, possibly forever. Suddenly, Marissa is thrown into the role of alpha friend. As Julia struggles to regain her memory- dredging up issues Marissa would rather forget, including the fact that Julia asked her to abandon the love of her life ten years ago- Marissa's own equilibrium is shaken.

    With the help of a dozen girls, she reluctantly agrees to coach in an after-school running program. There, Marissa uncovers her inner confidence and finds the courage to reexamine her past and take control of her future.

    The Art of Forgetting is a story about the power of friendship, the memories and myths that hold us back, and the delicate balance between forgiving and forgetting.
