Hue-Man Bookstore Online supported NYC Event: An Important and Relevant Conversation on Mental Well-Being on 11/11/2014.
Enjoy an enlightening and engaging evening with author and storyteller Andrew Solomon, as he discusses how to overcome the shame and stigma of mental illness -- a family secret many of us share - and an important topic on Veterans Day, since so many former members of the military are facing these issues.
An award-winning expert on mental health and family dynamics, Solomon wrote eloquently about his own struggles in 2001's The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression, winning a National Book Award and a Pulitzer Prize nomination.
His most recent work, 2012's Far From the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity is a ground-breaking exploration on how families can deal with kids who might be labeled different in some way. It's also a multiple prize winner, and landed on Best of the Year lists in both The New York Times andTime Magazine.
Books will be available for purchase at the event. Hue-man Bookstore Online will be the Bookseller.
