Says critic Joyce Johnson in The New York Times Book Review on An Uncertain Inheritance, "We have a great need to live with the illusion that we and those we love are immune to mortality, but inevitably, somewhere along the line, even if we ourselves are spared from illness, something cracks open — a father or a friend gets cancer, a mother succumbs to Alzheimer’s, a husband has a terrible accident, a child dies — and what Virginia Woolf once called 'extreme reality' floods in."

Please join us for an evening exploring the intimate and complex conditions of domestic relationships as they relate to giving and receiving care, featuring Nell Casey -- editor of the national bestseller Unholy Ghost: Writers on Depression and An Uncertain Inheritance, in which contributors reveal their experiences in caring for family through illness and death -- and Anne Landsman, author of the novels The Devil's Chimney and The Rowing Lesson, described by The New York Times Book Review as "viscerally appealing" and currently shortlisted for the $100,000 Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature.
