Reading. Sharing. Connecting
Corrine Jasmin, artist, filmmaker, and author of “Tread“, is our May 2019 feature for “Stories that Heal” in collaboration with City of Asylum. Her work often highlights her personal experiences as a Black, queer woman.
Join us Thursday, May 30 as Corrine shares from her first book, “Tread“, which is a collection of 49 poems that give readers insight into Corrine’s life over the past three years. The poems are an honest behind-the-scenes look at how she navigated life while experiencing mental health issues.
Stories That Heal is a free series that highlights local authors who live with and/or have a loved one who lives with mental health conditions. Their stories of lived experience promote empathy, foster resilience, and uncover the truths about living with a mental health diagnosis.
During each event, an author will read an excerpt from their book and a moderated Q&A will follow.
Please join us as we celebrate Pittsburgh literature and fight stigma!
Events will take place at the City of Asylum Bookstore located at 40 W. North Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15212.
