Books about history and identity are the focus of author Jessica Handler’s Page-Turners picks.

It’s not such a surprise, considering the fact that Handler’s memoir, "Invisible Sisters," deals with her own search for her place in the world following the deaths of her two younger sisters. The book, which Atlanta Magazine named Best Memoir of 2009, comes out in paperback from University of Georgia Press this fall.

In this edition of Page-Turners, Handler about what happens when an upbeat person gets a reputation for writing about very serious subject matter.
