Mike Scalise discusses his memoir The Brand New Catastrophe

April 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Raucous family memoir meets medical adventure in this heartfelt, hilarious book exploring the public and private theaters of illness. After a tumor bursts in Mike Scalise’s brain, leaving him with a hole in the head and malfunctioning hormones, he must navigate a new, alien world of illness maintenance. His mother, who has a chronic heart condition and a flair for drama, becomes a complicated model as she competes with him for the status of “best sick person.” The Brand New Catastrophe is a moving, funny exploration of how we define ourselves by the stories we choose to tell.
