Reading author reveals ordeal with domestic abuse, family struggles in new memoir

READING, Pa. — Author Sara Rivera announces the nationwide release of her encouraging new autobiography, “The Round About Life.” The memoir’s hardback edition will be released in October.

Readers will also empathize on Rivera’s tragic, seemingly unfair experiences in life: being bullied, having a schizophrenic mother and having to deal with the death of her grandmother who had a huge impact on her.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the books are available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or by visiting or
