Third Thursday Art Walk: Author Dena Taylor with her memoir "I Don't Wanna Be Pink"
A month before she was to celebrate her fortieth birthday in Italy, Dena Taylor was diagnosed with breast cancer. In seconds, she was transformed from enthusiastic traveler to frightened patient. Told with grace, candor, and inimitable wit, "I Don't Wanna Be Pink" is the story of a single, independent woman and the tumor that threatens to change her life. With support from a colorful cast of loved ones and her own determination, Taylor contends with painful procedures and upsetting encounters with callous insurance reps, well-meaning strangers, and potential lovers. In her darkest moments, she doubts her strength and worthiness of love. Ultimately, she grapples with whether she must join the pink, public march of advocacy or give herself permission to live life undefined by disease.
6pm. As a special treat, there will be an introduction to Ms. Taylor's appearance by Edmonds Bookshop owner, and friend of the author, David Brewster.
All kinds of great information on her website, here.
