An apology for choices he wasn’t sure he’d live long enough to regret, Mishka Shubaly’s first full-length memoir, I Swear I’ll Make It Up To You: A Life on the Low Road, is a story of family, heartbreak, violence, punk rock, brokenness, broke-ness, sex, love, loss, drinking, drinking, drinking, drinking, and an unlikely savior: distance running.
   A misfit kid in the best of times, Shubaly had his world shattered when, in a 24-hour span in 1992, he survived a mass shooting on his school’s campus, then learned that his parents were getting divorced. After the departure of his father, his remaining family soon lost their house. Vowing to avenge the wrongs against his mother, Shubaly plunged into a 17-year love affair with alcohol.
   Taking a cab home one night after a bar fight, Shubaly decided to run five miles the next morning to retrieve his bike. Thus began a new, much healthier love affair with running, and eventually a new life. And when Shubaly finally reunited with his estranged father, he discovered the story of his childhood was radically different from what he’d imagined.
   Mishka Shubaly is the author of six bestselling Kindle Singles for Amazon. Join us in celebrating the release of his first full-length memoir with a brief reading and a discussion about the book.
