A book talk and signing event was held on Sunday, February 8th at the Los Altos United Methodist Church (LAUMC) during a luncheon to celebrate Marian and the release of her memoir “Derek”. The event was well attended by her church family. Marian was happy to
introduce us to her editor, Derek’s doctor, and several members of the Aiken Family, including 18 of her sons. All of those in attendance enjoyed seeing a brief video that captured some of the moments in a day-in-the-life of Marian and her sons. It was also special to hear Marian introduce each of her sons individually and tell us where they were born. There were many books sold that day to people who were anxious to read Marian’s compelling story. Another story about Marian and her sons was published both online and in the Los Altos Town Crier on Wednesday, February 25, 2015. The online version shares a photo record of the event. In addition, a video of this event was created, and the DVD can be purchased for a small fee by contacting Cindy Golden at LAUMC.
