After listening to Regina Calcaterra convey her background as an abandoned child, I understood why her Etched in Sand memoir sat right next to Maya Angelou on the New York Times Best Seller List.

Every year St. Petersburg College selects a book for its One College/One Read program. In December of 2014, after months of voting, the college announced that it selected Etched in Sand as the One College/One Read 2015 book.

Regina was invited to share her most memorable book giving/getting holiday experience. The 1998 memory of giving Geraldine Ferraro’s last book “Framing A Life” is what stood out the most.
