The Institute for Leadership Studies, in cooperation with Book Passage and Dominican's Honors Program presents: The Sum of Our Days. Wednesday, April 2, 2008. Allende will discuss The Sum of Our Days, the breathtaking sequel to her acclaimed memoir, Paula, which continues the story on the rainy December day when Isabel and her family scattered Paula's ashes to the wind in a northern California forest. Guided by Paula's spirit, and shaped by a daily correspondence with her mother in Chile, Isabel recounts the lives of the unconventional tribe that is her extended family, in the process revealing her multifaceted persona as mother, step-mother, grandmother, wife and lover, and loyal friend. Her day to day life as a writer is at the fore, as she shares the stories behind her books, the superstitions that guide her writing process, and her adventurous travel.

The Sum of Our Days is a passionate and inspiring look at the life of the Allende family after the tragic loss of Paula. As life goes on, they are held together by love, but also by the unflagging determination of a resolute matriarch -- Isabel herself.
