Our Stories: Strength and Survival

Hosted by Eden Mills Writers’ Festival

These three memoirs tell the story of struggle: to rise above family trauma, dislocation and addiction; to survive a life-threatening illness against all odds; and to overcome a traumatic past in pursuit of a happy and meaningful life. But more than struggle, these are compelling stories of resilience, reminding us that the human spirit is not something easily broken. Join us for interviews with each author, followed by a group discussion and Q&A.

The Eden Mills Writers’ Festival celebrates the power of words – whether written, spoken or signed – to ignite our imaginations and reveal worlds and ideas beyond our own experience. We aim to encourage a culture of reading in today’s media-obsessed world by providing a venue for established and emerging writers to meet with their readers and to engage new fans.
