Reading with Q&A
Free and open to the public
Come hear a group of courageous women writers share their riveting autobiographical stories of suicide. Rarely is there an opportunity to listen to a suicide survivor speak their truth and yet suicide occurs frequently in our communities. Suicide is on the rise, increasing over 2% a year. The time is now to begin speaking of it and listening deeply. The authors will be reading from a small chapbook titled Suicide Imprint created earlier this year, in a workshop organized by Maureen Cummins and Denise Ranaghan, led by author Beverly Donofrio. The workshop was supported with funding and space provided by the Mental Health Association in Kingston, NY. The authors include: Ingrid Blaufarb Hughes, Dawn Breeze, Lorraine Coscia-Ackerman, Maureen Cummins, Linda Melick, Karen Ogborn, and Denise Ranaghan.
