Event details

Lawrence, Kan. – The Raven Book Store will host a reading and book signing at 7 p.m., Thursday, June 27, at The Raven (6 E. 7th St., Lawrence, Kan.). The event features Sue Westwind, author of Lunacy Lost: A Memoir of Green Mental Health.

Born into a family full of shame and secrets about their legacy of mental illness, Sue Westwind received her own set of labels when she ran away from home in 1969. Depression, anxiety, migraines and chronic fatigue grew worse as she grew older. But adopting an infant later diagnosed with autism changed her life forever, as Sue learns about the effect of diet, nutrient deficiencies, and environmental toxins on the mind. The path she strides to heal her daughter becomes her own. Lunacy Lost: A Memoir of Green Mental Health advocates an approach that welcomes body, spirit, and concern for the environment into discussions of psyche and suffering.
