Ladysitting: Author Talk with Lorene Cary




In LADYSITTING: MY YEAR WITH NANA AT THE END OF HER CENTURY, award-winning author Lorene Cary recounts her experience living with and caring for a dying loved one with clarity, humor, and hard truths. As she bears witness to her enigmatic grandmother’s 101 vibrant years of life, she captures the ruptures, love, and forgiveness that can occur in a family over time.

At this online event, hear Cary in conversation about the book, which chronicles the complicated natures of grief and caregiving as well as the author’s own upbringing in Philadelphia following her ancestors’ migration from the south.

In conversation with Dr. Neville Strumpf, Professor Emerita of the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing.
