“‘Writing Through Grief,’ a discussion with four contributors to the new anthology, The Widows’ Handbook.” (with Kristine Shorey Forbes, Susanne Braham, Connie Fisher, and Donna Hilbert)
Description of Presentation: In our grief, we write to process, and sometimes it is practical matters that can fill our heads. What to do with their ashes, their belongings, your wedding rings, with your dreams of him, with your feelings of vulnerability, with your photos of you together, and in general, with yourself without him? We participating contributors will talk about how our writing helped us think through these matters, and in the end, helped us heal.
Location: Seattle University, Pigott 103
