Stepping out of the shadows of the past, Lorna Luft, daughter of beloved star Judy Garland, has emerged with a stunning story of addiction, recovery, and the power of family. In Me and My Shadows: A Family Memoir, Luft shares her chaotic experience growing up in the wake of her mother's deadly dependence on alcohol and prescription drugs. Taking on the role of a parental figure since the age of 12, Luft's traumatic youth and her mother's deteriorating state were thrust into a glaring Hollywood spotlight. In Luft's eyes, the book "is about this family that tried to hold on, but every time we opened the door there was this great cyclone outside - the legend of Judy Garland."
At the lecture podium, Luft takes an honest look at the effects of addiction for the families of the addict. A captivating and entertaining storyteller, she shares the joy and humor that her mother brought into the world and the sincere love she had for her children, while examining the unnecessary tragedy of her addiction. Luft also discusses her own drug dependency and the hope and strength that allowed her to escape from the catastrophic cycle of addiction.
