Women Get a Recipe for Healing During Spring Education Day
About the Event
This year’s Women’s Philanthropy Spring Education Day featured best-selling author Jessica Fechtor, whose book “Stir: My Broken Brain and the Meals That Brought Me Home” chronicled her recovery after a life-altering brain aneurysm.
Ms. Fechtor’s candor offered the packed room at Zinman Hall a chance to understand how someone can return to normalcy after a trauma. Fechtor found recovery in the kitchen through cooking, and accomplishing even the most basic tasks, which she describes in her beautifully written cookbook/memoir/love story. What an inspiration!
Thank you to all the women who attended.
