Mental Health Awareness Month: Meet the Author: Pete Earley
Cascades Library
Tuesday, May. 19, 7:00 pm
Earley will discuss his new book, Resilience: Two Sisters and a Story of Mental Ilness, written in collaboration with Jessie Close. The book tells of the Close sisters' journey; from a cult school in Switzerland, to the Belgian Congo where their father became a surgeon in the war ravaged republic, to boarding school in the US, where Jessie first started to exhibit symptoms of severe bipolar disorder (she would later learn that this ran in the family, a well-kept secret). Through a series of destructive marriages, Glenn was always by Jessie's side and it was not until Jessie's son Calen entered McLean's psychiatric hospital that Jessie herself was diagnosed. Fifteen years and twelve years of sobriety later, Jessie is a stable and productive member of society. 
For teens & adults.
