Stories That Heal

Stories That Heal is a free monthly event featuring local authors who have written books about their experience with mental illness.  During the evening, the featured author reads excerpts from their book, shares details about their life, and takes questions from the audience. The inaugural Stories That Heal series took place during the spring and summer of 2018 at the City of Asylum bookstore on Pittsburgh’s North Side.  Authors included Jordan Corcoran (Listen, Lucy; Write It Out), K. Rose Quayle (Look Left, Walk Green), Lindsey Smith (Eat Your Feelings), and Abeer Hoque (Live Witch: A Memoir). 

Stories That Heal will resume in the fall.  Dates are still being finalized. 

If you would like to be put on our mailing list to receive updates on the Stories That Heal author series, email Joel at
