The Power of the Medical Narrative: Writing One’s Way Through Illness with Judith M. Ford and Kathleen Watt (In-Person)

Join Brooklyn Social Media for this discussion of the art of writing one’s way through catastrophic illness. In Fever of Unknown Origin: A True Tale of Medicine, Mystery and Magic, 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. 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.   

Location: The Old Stone House, 336 3rd Street, Brooklyn, NY 11215
