Kate Ledger at M&Q

Magers & Quinn Bookseller hosts St Paul’s own Kate Ledger, reading from her new novel Remedies, Thursday, September 10, at 7:30pm.

Simon and Emily look like a couple that has it all. Simon is a respected physician, one of Baltimore’s “Top Docs,” with a burgeoning private practice. His wife, Emily, shines professionally as a partner in a premier public relations firm. They have a beautiful house and a healthy daughter. But their marriage is scarred by old, hidden wounds. Even as Simon tends his patients’ ills, and Emily spins away her clients’ mistakes, they can’t seem to do the same for themselves or their relationship.

Remedies explores the complicated nature of pain, in the nerves of the body and the longings of the heart. To what lengths would you go to avoid feeling pain? And would you believe in a cure?
