LEFT COAST WRITERS BOOK LAUNCH: Donna Fado Ivery, Author of Spirit Journey to Healing
Saturday, March 10th, 2018 || 7pm Book Passage-Corte Madera|| 51 Tamal Vista Dr. Corte Madera || www.bookpassage.com
It’s a spirited evening for the March month of regeneration.
When a two hundred pound glass partition fell on Donna Fado Ivery’s head resulting in brain injury, disability, and chronic pain, she could no longer count on walking, speaking, thinking, or caring for her infant and preschool children and husband.
With words awash, she painted her prayers and discovered in the images her path toward healing.
This inspirational memoir shares her struggle through medical, social, and church prejudice, and her support through the loving bond of family, community, and spirit. With its integration of scripture, theology, painting, poetry, and storytelling, Spirit Journey to Healing is a deeply transformative guide from hardship and despair to hope.
In the last twenty years Donna Fado Ivery has been a featured preacher, painter, speaker, and lecturer at conferences, seminaries, workshops, and retreats across California and the United States. Donna has spoken in presentations to each audience, including health professionals, clergy, teachers, United Methodist Women, the disabled, ministers, and more. Published in a DVD, CD, periodicals, and others’ publications, she is now presenting her first book. She recently placed as a semi-finalist in the William Faulkner Words and Music essay competition.
