Although Examined Lives is not yet on the digital market or on bookshelves, I am starting my efforts to get the word out. My first event will be a reading and discussion at Woman Made Gallery, described in the release below. Just click on the link. I hope that those of you in Chicago can attend.
I welcome any suggestions about further opportunities to make my voice heard. The book offers so many possible angles: the glamour of my mother’s life in 1930’s Chicago, a no-holds-barred look at mental illness, the hopeful message that it can be faced and overcome, a cautionary tale about embracing medical practices based on hype and little data as well as about the responsibility one has for making medical decisions for someone else.
