The Book of Help

February 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join us for an author reading and signing for the “oh-so-buzzed-about” The Book of Help by Megan Griswold.

Megan was born into a family who enthusiastically embraced the offerings of New Age California 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, but instead the preliminary training for what would prove to be the wildest, most growth-insisting journey of her life. She encounters psychics, therapists, and tarot clairvoyants; camps everywhere from the deserts of Burning Man to remote encampments of the Chilean military; travels from interviews with Maasai schoolkids in Kenya to peak climbs in Wyoming. While some of her healing techniques borderline the extreme—she does a 21 day water fast, tries Ayahuasca, and becomes a doula to name a few—Megan acts as her own experimental guinea pig, fearlessly plunging into the world of alternative medicine as she endeavors to figure out what it means to be fully alive and have successful relationships
