Portland Hadassah presents….. an evening with the author:
featuring Letty Cottin Pogrebin

HOW TO BE A FRIEND TO A FRIEND WHO’S SICK

“I’m sure you already know how to “be friends” when it means catching up over lunch… But when a pal or loved one falters physically or mentally–when they’re hobbled or hurting, when your role in the relationship is no longer easy or obvious, when your interests and exchanges are not entirely reciprocal, and your once-easy conversation tips jarringly toward matters of crisis and pain–you may have to find new ways of being together, new means for you to be helpful…” (Pogrebin, 2014).

A founding editor and writer for Ms. Magazine, Ms. Pogrebin is also the author of eleven books, including How To Be A Friend To A Friend Who’s Sick. Pogrebin’s advice about friendship and illness — infused with sensitivity, warmth, and (believe it or not) humor–is interwoven with boldly candid stories from her own journey through the land of the sick and her sometimes imperfect interactions with friends of hers who are sick or suffering.

Start reading now, and then join us for a fabulous evening with Letty!

Cost: $36
