October 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
I’ll be reading in the auditorium of the North York Central Library as part of the TPL “eh list” series on October 2 at 7pm.
Bestselling author Ami McKay appears to discuss her new book Daughter of Family G: A Memoir of Cancer Genes, Love and Fate.
Weaving together family history, genetic discovery, and scenes from her life, Ami McKay tells the compelling, true-science story of her own family’s unsettling legacy of hereditary cancer.
In this intimate, candid, and probing genetic memoir, McKay explores the challenges that come from carrying a mutation that not only killed many people she loved, but that threatens her own life. She shares her beautiful examination of the many ways she’s learned to live with the hand she was dealt.
Hear Ami discuss her new book with award-winning Canadian science journalist, Alanna Mitchell.
Q&A and book signing to follow.
This event is free, and no registration is needed to attend.
