Best-selling author Siri Hustvedt will discuss her book The Shaking Woman: Or a History of My Nerves, on Tuesday, March 30 at 7:00 p.m. at the University of Minnesota Bookstore in Coffman Memorial Union, 300 Washington Ave. S.E. Minneapolis. Novelist Siri Hustvedt puts forth a brilliant exploration of brain and mind in The Shaking Woman where she shares her experience of being seized by convulsions during a public speech. Not knowing if it was caused by hysteria, conversion reaction or a coincidental attack of epilepsy, Hustvedt delivers a provocative, often funny and down-to-earth look at her attempt to find answers. Her story unfolds with her discovery of the point where brain and mind, neurology and psychiatry, come together in neuro-psychoanalysis. Hustvedt is also the author of The Sorrows of an American, What I Loved, The Enchantment of Lily Dahl, and The Blindfold. Hustvedt will sign copies of her book following the discussion. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, or to order a signed copy visit www.bookstore.umn.edu/genref/authors.html. (UMNBookstore)
