A FREE virtual book discussion with author Jennifer Freed
May 31 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Join author Jennifer Freed on Zoom May 31 at 2:00 for an informal discussion of her new book, When Light Shifts. In this book, Freed creates a memoir that evokes from multiple perspectives the aftermath of brain injury (in this case cerebral hemorrhage), touching on themes of identity and ability, loss and healing, and the demands of parenting one’s parents.

She has been a finalist for the Frank O’Hara prize multiple times, and has received multiple nominations for the Pushcart Prize and Orison Anthology.
