“My Lovely Wife in the Psych Ward”

Thursday, May 23, 2019 6:30 PM
Located at the Community Hall
Mark Lukach's internationally bestselling memoir My Lovely Wife in the Psych Ward chronicles the unexpected onset of a bipolar diagnosis for his wife Giulia, her three hospitalizations with psychosis, her lengthy bouts with suicidal depression, and Mark's attempts to support her as a caregiver. The New York Times Book Review wrote that Mark's "rare combination of tenderness and ruthlessness is what makes this book more interesting than your typical illness narrative." Copies can be purchased at the event, courtesy of Orinda Books.

Mark has spoken about his family's story to businesses, hospitals, schools, and mental health organizations across the country, focusing on how mental illness is a shared experience. He is currently the ninth grade dean and a history teacher at The Athenian School, and lives with Giulia and their two sons in Lafayette.

Please join us for this touching and relevant presentation during Mental Health Awareness Month.
