Everyone knows someone who’s sick or suffering. Yet when a friend or relative is under duress many of us do or say the wrong thing or feel awkward or ill-equipped to help. Drawing on more than eighty revelatory interviews and her personal experience with breast cancer, Letty Cottin Pogrebin will discuss her new book, How To Be A Friend To A Friend Who’s Sick which takes on – without flinching – the most challenging questions of how to provide comfort to people closest to us (and how to avoid botching the effort!). Book sale & signing to follow.
