CANCELED The Book of Help: A Memoir in Remedies, with Megan Griswold

Wednesday, July 10th, 2019, 6 p.m. This event has been CANCELED. Please check back for possible rescheduling.

When Megan Griswold’s newly wedded husband calls in the middle of the night to say that he’s landed in jail, Megan must accept that her many certificates, degrees and licenses had not been the finish line she’d once imagined, but instead the training for what would prove to be the wildest, most growth-insisting journey of her life. Documenting the trial of over 290 self-help therapies, The Book of Help is a heartbreakingly vulnerable and tragically funny memoir-in-remedies tracing one woman’s 6 continent, worldwide quest for self-healing and peace of mind.

Often hilarious and, at times, heartbreaking, The Book of Help is an expedition through existential curiosity. Megan’s adventures offer a beacon for readers’ own paths as they too grapple with what it means to be a loving human in the world. By leading readers through layers of spiritual and holistic experiments and lesser understood methods of wellness, they feel equipped to embark on their own journey, and Megan, an ally to a reader’s unfolding. The memoir, while entertaining, offers serious insight into a niche spectrum of non-traditional healing and her memoir is a deep dive into this sphere—showing us what it taught her, and how we may make more intelligent use of these resources.
