Marin County Free Library - Novato Library, Wednesday, September 17 at 7pm
Katherine will read and speak about her new book, Shot in the Head A Sister's Memoir, A Brother's Struggle. This is her literary debut about her experience helping her mentally ill younger brother, Paul who had schizophrenia, when he was diagnosed with lung cancer. As the author says, "my younger brother Paul was more than a 'schizophrenic.' He was a brother, a son, and above all, a person that my eight siblings and I loved. It wasn't until his care – and his treatments for lung cancer — started taking more and more of my attention that I realized his story demanded to be written."
