Single, happily childless, and still a virgin at 35, Nicole must grapple with the agonizing decision to trade her traditions and her spiritual center for a chance at life and love free from stifling cultural expectations.

In the tradition of the memoirs Devotion and Mennonite in a Little Black Dress, Nicole Hardy’s “Confessions of a Latter-Day Virgin”, inspired by her earlier essay published in the New York Times, “Single, Female, Mormon, Alone”, has been hailed as a mesmerizing, wholly relatable account of one woman’s hard-won mission to find love, acceptance, and happiness—on her own terms.

Hardy will on hand to dicuss her memoir at an Oct. 20 author event sponsored by Griffin Bay Bookstore and hosted by Tops’ l Sushi Bar, in Friday Harbor.

Nominated for a “Pushcart Prize”, Hardy is also the author of two poetry collections, “This Blonde” and “Mud Flap Girl’s XX Guide to Facial Profiling”. Hardy will be at Tops’ L Sushi Bar, Sunday, Oct. 20, beginning at 5 p.m.
