The Wrong Way To Save Your Life

In an event presented by the Society of Midland Authors, Megan Stielstra will discuss her new book The Wrong Way to Save Your Life, an insightful collection of essays about life and death, marriage and motherhood, joy and sorrow. It's warm, witty and wise.

"For its wisdom and compassion, honesty and courage, Stielstra's stellar essay collection is a lifeline and a microscope, a means of examining the dread of whatever one finds daunting and a manner of exorcising demons through the sheer power of commitment and desire," says Booklist.


Stielstra is an artist-in-residence at Northwestern University and a longtime company member with Chicago's 2nd Story storytelling collective. Recently, she joined the New York Times as a contributing opinion writer.

Tuesday, October 10, at the Cliff Dwellers Club, 200 S. Michigan Ave., 22nd floor.

* 6 p.m.: Social hour, with complimentary snacks & cash bar
* 7 p.m.: Stielstra's presentation
* Free and open to the public.
* No advance registration is required.
