      EVENT DETAILS
      Eva Hagberg Fisher in Conversation With Sophia Shalmiyev

      Eva Hagberg Fisher spent her lonely youth looking everywhere for connection: drugs, alcohol, therapists, boyfriends, girlfriends. Sometimes she found it, but always temporarily. Then, at age 30, an undiscovered mass in her brain ruptured. So did her life. A brain surgery marked only the beginning of a long journey, and when her illness hit a critical stage, it forced her to finally admit the long-suppressed truth: she was vulnerable, she needed help, and she longed to grow. She needed true friendship for the first time. Fisher’s How to Be Loved (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) is a luminous memoir about how friendship saved one woman’s life, for anyone who has loved a friend who was sick, grieving, or lost – and for anyone who has struggled to seek or accept help. Fisher will be joined in conversation by Sophia Shalmiyev, author of Mother Winter.
