The acclaimed author of Recovery ... Learning to love and live after loss, Patricia Brown, will be a guest of Singleton Library on Thursday, September 21 to talk about her book that has been described as a “manual for living”.
Patricia wrote Recovery ... Learning to love and live after loss after the realisation that loss had dominated her life for more than 40 years stemming from episodes of personal tragedy and financial struggle.
The book provides an understanding of the grief process and offers guidance and a variety of approaches to help people overcome grief and begin the return to hope, happiness and a meaningful life.
While it begins with Patricia’s story of loss, it goes on to reveal the steps she took to turn her life around and includes case studies and exercises designed to help those undertaking their own journeys to move forward in their healing process.
Anthony Egan, Singleton Council’s Director Corporate and Community, said as well as being an inspirational story, Patricia Brown’s book could also be a valuable resource for people in similar circumstances.
“Patricia Brown’s book has been acclaimed as giving clarity, direction and hope to anyone who is struggling with significant loss,” he said.
“Singleton Library does a great job to bring in authors from a range of genres so that our community can engage directly with the people who write what our Library members like to read.”
Patricia Brown will speak about her story and guide for recovery at Singleton Library with copies of her book available for sale and signing on Thursday, September 21 from 5.30pm to 7pm. Bookings are essential.
