Nellie Hermann will read from The Cure for Grief, “a subtle, elegiac coming-of-age novel about catastrophe, grief and the persistence of everyday life. ...A gorgeously readable meditation on mourning and survival. Profound, poetic and original" (Kirkus Reviews).

Narrative Medicine Rounds are lectures or readings presented by scholars, clinicians, or writers engaged in work at the interface between narrative and health care. Rounds are held on the first Wednesday of each month from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in the Columbia University Medical Center Faculty Club, followed by a reception. Rounds are free and open to the public. Students, staff, faculty, patients, friends, and interested others are warmly welcome to join us.
