SEPTEMBER BOOK CLUB, BOOK WE LOVE IS….
September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day and our book club pick this month comes from a very special local author.
“In the early morning hours of August 4, 2013, Joy Pavelich’s world was shattered when she found out that her twenty-year old son Eric had taken his own life at the family farm in Saskatchewan. Struggling to make sense of Eric’s sudden and unexpected suicide, Joy takes a deeply personal and difficult journey through his past—from his happy childhood, to his mental health struggles in his early teens, to his death and the resulting aftermath of his passing. Chasing My Son Across Heaven demonstrates how to rebuild a life fractured by extreme trauma using storytelling as a powerful healing tool. The author tackles some of the most pressing issues facing society today; youth mental health, suicide and post-traumatic stress. Through her explorations, Joy reveals how we can all find the courage to rebuild our lives while continuing to honor the deep love for those we’ve lost.” -Barnes & Noble
