The Power of the Medical Narrative: Writing One’s Way Through Illness with Judith M. Ford and Kathleen Watt
Join us for this discussion of the art of writing one’s way through catastrophic illness.
In Fever of Unknown Origin, Judith M. Ford shows what it’s like to lose everything–health, career, family and the prospect of the future due to a mysterious disease. A vivid exploration of the complexities of family, love, and illness.
In Rearranged, Kathleen Watt’s facial bone cancer ended her career as an opera singer and brought her face to face with mortality, disfigurement, the meaning of beauty and the insidious toll of caregiving on a relationship.
