Wise Women | So Sorry for Your Loss: Learning to Live With Grief (and Maybe Even Laugh Along the Way) | Special Guest Dina Gachman

Location: Treehouse Lake Room

October 22, 2024 2:00 pm

Dina will talk about the things that have been most (and least) helpful as she's attempted to accept grief into her life, and share stories of others who have inspired her along the way. After losing her mother to cancer in 2018 and her sister to alcoholism two years later, Dina will speak honestly and openly about things like loving someone with substance or alcohol issues, dealing with the tough realities of hospice, and coming to the realization that grief is not linear and there is no end date, but accepting it into your life may actually open you up and help you connect with others in a deeper way.
Dina is a Pulitzer Center grantee, a bestselling ghostwriter for celebrities (maybe she'll spill some tea!), and a frequent contributor to the New York Times, Texas Monthly, Vanity Fair, The Guardian + more. Her book of essays about grief, So Sorry For Your Loss, has been featured in Time, Oprah Daily, Today Show, NPR, BBC, CBS, Southern Living and more. Publisher's Weekly calls it a "poignant, personal exploration of grief." Lauren Hough says it is "heartbreakingly human and mordantly funny." She was a featured author at the 2023 Texas Book Festival and is currently working on her third book, about a great aunt who was convicted of arson in the 1940s.
