Mark Epstein -- "The Trauma of Everyday Life"

Mark Epstein will speak about and sign his new book, The Trauma of Everyday Life, on Tuesday, August 5th at 7:30pm.About the Book:Trauma does not just happen to a few unlucky people; it is the bedrock of our psychology. Death and illness touch us all, but even the everyday sufferings of loneliness and fear are traumatic. In The Trauma of Everyday Life psychiatrist Mark Epstein uncovers the transformational potential of trauma, revealing how it can be used for the mind's own development. Epstein finds throughout that trauma, if it doesn't destroy us, wakes us up to both our minds' own capacity and to the suffering of others. It makes us more human, caring, and wise.Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event.
