How can a person who lives with multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, lupus, or arthritis communicate their experiences to people who do not live with these or other autoimmune diseases? Town Hall Seattle and Benaroya Research Institute present The Body Lives Its Undoing—a reflection in poetry and visual art. Engage in an interactive program featuring poet and parent Suzanne Edison, and other researchers, artists, physicians, patients, and caregivers. Join us for a delve into personal perspectives on the world of autoimmunity.

Proceeds from all book sales at this event will support medical research at the Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason,

Suzanne Edison is a poet, educator and mother of a child with a rare autoimmune disease. She has led writing workshops for those living with chronic illness, as well as reflective writing sessions for medical professionals and the public. Edison’s work can be found in The Body Lives its Undoing and several anthologies including The Healing Art of Writing, Volume One, and in numerous medical journals.

Presented by Town Hall Seattle as part of the 2019 Homecoming Festival.
