Event description

Description

In Danger is one woman’s powerful story of how her mother’s death saved her life.

When Josepha Dietrich was 21, her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Four years after her mother’s death, the disease reared up in Josie’s own cells, this time more aggressively. She was 34, and her high-needs baby son was not yet one.

In Danger is Josie’s journey through life with breast cancer from inside the experience, capturing her energy and force-of-nature personality. She reflects on the literary works that inspired her, from cancer literature to other medical memoirs, works that helped her to explore disease and the human condition, and shed light on its darker aspects.

At its heart, this moving memoir delves deep into how it feels when everything you love is in danger.

Join Josie as she discusses her memoir, In Danger.

Books will be available for purchase on the night, or bring your copy from home for Josie to sign.

Presented as part of the Lord Mayor’s Writers in Residence series.
