PFL Author Talk: Melanie Brooks in Conversation with Susan Conley
Tuesday October 3, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
In her new memoir, A Hard Silence, Melanie Brooks interrogates the silence that surrounded her father’s illness after he was infected with HIV from a blood transfusion in 1985. In retelling this story on her own terms, she’s able to travel beyond her trauma and recognize the value of inviting readers to share in the experience with her. With acclaimed author Susan Conley, Melanie will discuss the redemptive work of bringing such hard stories to the page, and together they will offer both writers and readers insights on how rigorously exploring our personal pain can bring collective healing and understanding.
This program will be presented in person and on Zoom. Registration is required for Zoom only: https://bit.ly/pflbrooks
