Mental Health & Addiction: Poems, short stories, interviews, research.
Isabella Mori will share their project that combines poems and short stories with interviews and research on the topics of mental health and addiction, from loneliness to neurodiversity and the story of a mother whose son is “half angel, half demon” and struggling with substance use. This will be followed with a conversation with the audience about both the content and the approach of mixing genres.
When: Sunday, March 28, noon to 1:15pm, on Zoom
Cost: By donation (no one turned away) / Free for members ($25 annually)
