NPC Headliners Book Event: Joanna Breyer on what to do "When Your Child is Sick"
November 13, 2018 6:30 PM
Location: Lisagor Room
Author and psychosocial counselor Joanna Breyer used her decades of experience working with sick children and their families to create the comprehensive field guide we all hope we will never need: “When Your Child is Sick: A Guide to Navigating the Practical and Emotional Challenges of Caring for a Child Who is Very Ill.” Breyer will lead an intimate conversation on how parents can take back some control and cope with the impossible at a National Press Club Headliners Book Event on Tuesday, November 13.
This event will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the Club’s Lisagor Room, and will feature a discussion with the author, an audience question-and-answer session, and a book signing. Tickets are $5 for National Press Club members and $10 for the general public. When purchasing tickets for this event online, buyers will also have the option of purchasing copies of the book at check-out.
Books will also be available for purchase at the event. Proceeds from book sales will benefit the non-profit affiliate of the Club, the National Press Club Journalism Institute, so we kindly ask that you leave all outside books and memorabilia at home.
