November 10 – Annecy Báez: Fiction and Therapeutic Impact of Writing for Healing

RSVP here

Juggling professional life and the wish to be creative is a challenge; find out how one author and mental health professional struck a balance between the two in this reading and workshop by Annecy Báez.

Annecy Baez will read from her book My Daughter’s Eyes and Other Stories, winner of the Mármol Prize—a collection of fourteen interrelated stories about young Dominican women living in the Bronx as they deal with the choices they make in their everyday life. These stories span three decades, beginning in the 1970s, and their topics range from mother-daughter struggles, father-daughter betrayal, family, and child abuse, to emerging sexuality, love, loss, and healing.

After the reading, Annecy will present a short workshop on how she, as a psychotherapist, came to write it and what she learned in the process—with the hope that it inspires emerging writers to do the same.
