Letty Cottin Pogrebin: "How To Be a Friend to a Friend Who's Sick"

When: Mon., Oct. 28, 7 p.m. 2013

When a friend or relative is under duress, many of us feel uncertain how to cope. Award-winning journalist Letty Cottin Pogrebin was prompted to write her book when as a breast cancer patient herself, she became fascinated by how her friends behaved awkwardly, and frequently misinterpreted her needs. Letty will be in conversation with Gestalt therapist Rusty Moe about her personal experience and the interviews she conducted with patients. Learn about what people with illnesses wished their friends knew about comforting, helping and simply talking to them.
