The Shaking Woman

Siri Hustvedt suffered a violent seizure from the neck down in 2006, and the seizures happened again and again. She talks about searching for a diagnosis to her disorder. Her memoir The Shaking Woman or a History of My Nerves is an account of her search, and how it brought up some fundamental questions: What is the relationship between brain and mind? How do we remember? What is the self?

Event: Siri Hustvedt will be in conversation with Rita Charon, director of Columbia University’s Narrative Medicine program
Wednesday, March 10, at 7:00 pm
