The Pieces Come Together…At Last: The Memoirs of an Adult Adoptee and Her Sister is the story of two sisters (technically “half-sisters,” but neither likes that term) who were born in the Capital Region and lived in Schenectady County for the majority of their lives. Patricia Ann Morris was born in Troy in 1939 to single mother Elizabeth Morris and was soon adopted and raised by Marguerite and John Walsh in Scotia. Arlene Patricia Richter was born in Glens Falls to Elizabeth (Morris) and Walter Richter in 1950 and was raised “just across the bridge” in Schenectady. Patricia and Arlene met for the first time in 2008. Books will be available for purchase and signing at this event.
