Left Bank Books welcomes author Megan Griswold, who will sign and discuss her new memoir, The Book of Help: A Memoir in Remedies!
Megan Griswold was born into a family who enthusiastically embraced the offerings of New Age culture––at seven she asked Santa for her first mantra and by twelve she was taking weekend workshops on personal growth. But later, when her newly-wedded husband calls in the middle of the night to say 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 them to be. The Book of Help is the story of the 15,000 hours and 160 different remedies, therapies, and modalities that Megan went through, poking and prodding herself to feel better and be better. With a voice that is at once intimate and hilarious, Megan captures the openness and honesty necessary for people to take a new path in life.
“Megan Griswold’s fantastic memoir is part-medicine for our time, part-balm for our collective wounds, part-instruction manual. Unexpectedly hilarious, self-deprecating, moving, and a story for all women in this time, I couldn’t put it down." ––Alexandra Fuller, author of Leaving Before the Rains Come
