Fernie Heritage Library’s next virtual author reading is by author Liz Levine “Nobody Ever Talks About Anything But the End”.
Here’s a little more about Liz’s perspective on suicide and mental illness:
In her new book (a finalist for the 2021 Hubert Evans Nonfiction Prize), Nobody Ever Talks About Anything But the End, Liz Levine, whose sister died by suicide, moves you through complicated emotions and nuanced topics that relate to death, mental illness, relationships, grieving and life.
People want to talk to Levine about the circumstances of her sister’s death — how Tamara jumped to her death from the balcony of her Toronto condo, and how tragic and sad it was — but they didn’t want to talk about the years of mental illness that led to that end. Liz wanted to talk about the events leading up to her sister’s tragic end. She wanted to talk about mental illness, and how she didn’t get along with her sister in life, and how the loss of her sister was different than that of the loss of her best friend from cancer.
Join Liz for a Virtual Zoom Meet Up as Liz talks about her book, her story and the journey that led her to today. #NobodyEverTalks
