Are excitement and anxiety flip sides of the same coin? How come I started waking up at 5:30 a.m. this week? What yummy appetizers will Orlando, Autumn and their crew at Cafe 54 prepare for the OFFICIAL BOOK LAUNCH of A Certain Slant of Light: Emerging from the Shadows of Mental Illness?
Mark your calendars: Friday, Jan. 17 from 5-7 p.m. at Our Place Clubhouse, 66 E. Pennington St. The Clubhouse and Cafe 54 are under the umbrella of Coyote Task Force, of which I’ve been a board member since 2007.
Our book has everything — heartfelt writing, poetry, Emily Dickinson, neuroscience, hope, Suzi Hileman, memoir, laughter, great quotes, sad times, artwork, references, collaboration, surprises, photographs of wonderful people, a few statistics, what you can do to help reduce the stigma of mental illness, and lots of love.
If you want to meet us all, munch on a yummy lemon square or two, we’ll see you on Jan. 17!
We’ll also be signing A Certain Slant of Light: Emerging from the Shadows of Mental Illness at Stroll and Roll with Suzi Hileman at the Christina-Taylor Green Linear Park on Jan. 11, 2014, part of Beyond Tucson to commemorate the Jan. 8, 2011 tragedy in Tucson. We’re all in this together!
I’ll have a lot more to share about upcoming book signings. Heading back east for Thanksgiving with my daughter and son-in-law. Enjoy good health with your family and friends. Stay calm. I’ll try.
