Loss and Writing to Compassion

Poet and retired professor, Jane Olmsted, will read from and discuss her memoir, The Tree You Come Home To, Wednesday, November 9, at 5 p.m. in the Milkweed Event Room.
“The Tree You Come Home To is the story of one family’s struggle with mental illness and addiction and the chaos following the murder of the youngest son. The memoir alternates between the author’s journey to healing and her son’s own story; it also addresses his brothers’ journeys and the parenting challenges faced by the author and her husband.”
