Resilience posterResilience: An Inspirational Evening with Susan Wener
Wednesday, April 29 at 7 pm
Free

Susan Wener’s training as a naturopath and therapist helps her comfort patients coping with the physical and emotional devastation of a cancer diagnosis. However, as a two-time cancer survivor, she knows first-hand what it is to deal with a life-threatening disease. In her gripping memoir, Resilience, using prose that is both funny and profoundly moving, Wener takes us on her extraordinary journey to wellness and wisdom.

Critics have praised Wener’s memoir as “a ‘must read’ for everyone but especially for those who have had cancer affect their lives or the lives of their friends or family.”

We hope to see you at this very special event!
