Radical Acts of Love: Powerful Perspectives on Grief, Loss and Dying
Frequently relegated to the isolation of private life, discussions on grief have long been avoided, sidestepped or utterly ignored. In a deeply intimate and open conversation, authors Janie Brown (Radical Acts of Love, Penguin Random House), Liz Levine (Nobody Ever Talks About Anything But the End, Simon & Schuster) and Alison Acheson (Dance Me to the End, Brindle & Glass) untangle the complexities of death through healing, personal narratives of caretaking, loss, grief and recovery which run the gamut of human emotion. Moderated by actress and avid reader France Perras, this will be an uplifting and reaffirming event of life––especially after death.
About the moderator:
France Perras is a creative gatherer by nature. An actor, first and foremost, she has been seen on screen, stage and behind the microphone. She is the recipient of two Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards in the Outstanding Performance category, with Théâtre la Seizième. A lover of books/avid reader, she has had the pleasure of moderating events for the Vancouver Writers Fest for the past 10 years.
Presented by the Vancouver Writers Fest in partnership with the Vancouver Public Library with support from the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association.
