Janice Post-White presents Standing at Water's Edge
Wednesday, January 5, 7:00 PM
In-Store Event - Registration Required
Janice Post-White with her son, Brennan, present Standing at Water’s Edge: A Cancer Nurse, Her Four-Year-Old Son and the Shifting Tides of Leukemia
In conversation with Kate St. Vincent Vogl, author of Lost & Found: A Memoir of Mothers
Janice Post-White was an oncology nurse who thought she knew what life with cancer was about--until her four-year-old son was diagnosed with leukemia. While he drew pictures to process his emotions, she buried her feelings and threw herself into managing a dual role as a medical professional and mother. Her memoir shares her son's perspective as a young cancer patient and teen survivor and explores her own personal and professional insights on survivorship, resilience, healing and what facing death can teach us about living.
As a nurse, researcher, educator, and writer, Janice Post-White has four decades of experience in cancer, psychoneuroimmunology, and complementary medicine and integrative cancer care. She studies how the mind communicates with the body and writes about resiliency in illness from personal and professional experience. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota and Lana’i, Hawaii.
Kate St. Vincent Vogl is a teacher at the Loft Literary Center, where Janice completed a two-year traineeship in Creative Nonfiction.
Kate St. Vincent Vogl is the author of Lost & Found: A Memoir of Mothers. National ABC news has featured her story, and The Akron Beacon Journal named it among the best of the year. Her latest work appears in Prairie Schooner. She has received a Minnesota State Arts Board grant for her work, as well as a residency at the Anderson Center. Vogl has taught at the Loft Literary Center for years and looks forward to leading a retreat for memoir writers this summer at the Grand Marais Art Colony.
