On Saturday, July 30, Tulsa-native Cheryl Y. Forrest releases her memoir, The Girl on the Belvedere—Finding Meaning Through Travel, Friendship, and French.
The book launch begins at 10:30 a.m. at the Tulsa Historical Society. The event is free and open to the public, and the author will make some remarks and be available to sign books.
The Girl on the Belvedere is Cheryl’s story of her well-traveled youth, life in the ballet company, and her experiences later in life traveling to French immersion courses in Quebec City and the South of France. In her memoir, Cheryl reflects upon the foreign friendships she made, as well as how events in France caused her to view life in America differently.
Cheryl grew up in Tulsa but has lived throughout the country, including time in New York City and Charlottesville, Virginia. She currently lives in Tulsa with her husband and serves as the chief historian of Tulsa Ballet. She has maintained a love for travel.
