Good Grief – Three Writers On Loss, Love, And Life
In an eleven-month period, Nancy Hauswald lost four members of her immediate family, including her husband of 32 years. After poking her head out from under the rock where she’d been hiding for eighteen months, she pursued a lifelong dream of going to graduate school and getting an MFA degree in Creative Writing. As part of her thesis requirement, Nancy studied three memoirs about grief and analyzed how the authors used the cornerstones of time, place, and artifacts to create meaning out of chaos.

This presentation, Good Grief, presents how those memoirists—Ann Hood (Comfort), Mark Doty (Heaven’s Coast), and Trent Preszler (Little and Often)— used writing as an important component of healing after loss.

Nancy is the manager of an independent bookshop in Belfast, Maine, and has been a freelance writer and editor. She is currently writing a book about the nearly ten years she spent as a cruising sailor with her late husband, as well as essays on such eclectic and diverse topics as seasickness, saddle shoes, the art of bookselling, and being a widow.

Nancy’s emotionally compelling narrative presentation will be followed by an opportunity for questions, comments, and discussion.

This virtual, on-line event is the first in what will be a quarterly series entitled ‘You’ve Been Dying To Know About …’ – programs on the many aspects of Death and Dying.
