10:15 Book Discussion

Meet the author and Blackhawk neighbor, Linda Zercoe, for a memorable morning discussion about her latest book A Kick-Ass Fairy. This memoir explores what a real life looks like when having to experience multiple emotional and medical challenges. There is no holding back, and as a result, the reader is taken into the expe- rience and mind of the author, being left with the realization that she is speaking to the universality of facing adversity. Linda has survived by being her own medical advocate, reinventing herself professionally and personally, and by sheer will. All this, no matter how painful, while managing a household and family that could be supportive and at times debilitating and living a life of pur- pose, fulfillment and fun.
