• Trauma & Resilience

    South Windsor Public Library (Friend's Room)

    David Kaczynski, the brother of Theodore Kaczynski - the so-called Unabomber - who was arrested in 1996 after David and his wife Linda approached the FBI with their suspicions, will be giving a public talk on "Trauma and Resilience." David is the author of “Every Last Tie: the Story of the Unabomber and His Family” (Duke University Press), a memoir that discusses his brother’s mental illness and its impact on the family. Despite his diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia, Theodore was charged capitally and only avoided the death penalty after his family waged a two-year campaign to convince the US Justice Department that Theodore’s delusions had precipitated his violent behavior. David lectures frequently on issues related to mental illness. He is the past executive director of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra, a Buddhist monastery located in Woodstock, NY. He previously served as executive director of New Yorkers For Alternatives To The Death Penalty, and as assistant director of the Equinox Shelter for runaway and homeless youth in Albany, New York, where he counseled and advocated for neglected and abused youth. His articles and opinion pieces have appeared in Psychology Today, People, The Week, and several daily newspapers. Free monthly series introducing you to a variety of holistic modalities.
