In Danger: A Memoir of Family and Hope, by Josepha Dietrich
For September, we'll be reading 'In Danger: A Memoir of Family and Hope' by Josepha Dietrich. (From Goodreads) One woman's powerful story of how her mother's death saved her life. When Josepha Dietrich was 21, her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Years later, after her mother's death, the disease reared up in Josie's own cells. She was 35, and her high-needs son was not yet one. As the daughter of a woman who had sought out alternatives to conventional medicine, Josie used her own knowledge and her mother's experience to find solutions for herself. Later, with what she'd learnt, she also helped her son rise out of his autistic state. Capturing Josie's energy and force-of-nature personality, In Danger tells of her journey through breast cancer, exploring disease and the human condition, and shedding light on life's darker aspects. At its heart, this moving memoir delves deep into how it feels when everything you love is in danger.

What we're about

Hi all, we get together and discuss our chosen book. We meet on the fourth Friday of each month, between 6 and 9 pm. Bring a snack to share and drinks if you would like.

Answer the profile questions if you would like to join the group; requests without any responses to these questions will be declined, as we're a small meetup and we are looking for active members.

If you find you've been removed from the group, it's because you haven't had any activity here. We're just making room for active members. If you've been declined recently but would like to join, feel free - we're just tidying up!
