REFRESHING READS

My Glory Was I Had Such Friends by Amy Silverstein

Melissa Apple will lead this month's discussion.

 

In this moving memoir about the power of friendship and the resilience of the human spirit, Amy Silverstein tells the story of the extraordinary group of women who supported her as she waited on the precipice for a life-saving heart transplant.

“I debated on choosing this book because I knew it was going to be an extremely personal read, and I wouldn’t be able to discuss it without talking about why it hit so close to home for me. As a two-time kidney transplant recipient, my situation was not quite as life or death as the author’s, but it certainly has required strength, resilience, and hope. A lot of hope. I’ve been laid up in the hospital, hooked up to a dialysis machine, and left hoping beyond hope for a matching donor. But through it all, I’ve had the glory of such friends that were there for me through every step of the journey. Join me at the wine bar for what’s sure to be a powerful and emotional discussion. Bring your tissues; I’ll bring the chocolate!” -- Melissa
