Jennifer Spiegel reads from her memoir, Cancer, I'll Give You One Year: A Non-Informative Guide To Breast Cancer, A Writer's Memoir In Almost Real Time.
Embracing candor as an aesthetic, this real-time story hits upon the sacred, the profane, a trip to Epcot, a colonoscopy, Spiegel's kids' responses to everything, and OJ Simpson’s parole hearing. "Writing-centric, voice-driven, and conscious of a death sentence . . . no diets or exercises are offered, but the author may give horrible parenting advice. It’s undoubtedly funny, but also a meditation on meaning."
Lara Smith, with whom Spiegel reviews books on Snotty Literati, emcees/moderates the discussion.
