My Life: Memoirs as Told By Grief - Stratford Writers Festival
Event Date: Saturday Oct. 21st, 2017
Event Time: 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Glenn Dixon travels to Verona to deal with the devastation of a broken heart. Marianne Apostolides describes searching far and wide for a way to deal with the grief of a life that almost was, and Lorina Mapa explains how depression from the loss of a loved one led her to connect with a life she had left far behind. Moderated by author Alison Wearing, these three memoir authors discuss how personal grief and the journey to overcome this crippling emotion led them down a road of self-discovery and redemption, and demonstrate the ultimate truth in the adage, "That which does not kill us, makes us stronger."
