NAMI Keystone Pennsylvania Presents
Stories That Heal
Thursday, May 30th
Stories That Heal — presented by NAMI Keystone Pennsylvania — returns with their monthly reading series highlighting local authors who live with and/or have a loved one who lives with mental health conditions. Their stories promote empathy, foster resilience and uncover the truths about living with a mental health diagnosis.
This May features Corrine Jasmin, local writer, artist, and filmmaker. Corrine uses her work as a tool for healing, loving and making sense of a chaotic world. Her work frequently features her “Trifecta” narrative: being black, being a woman and being queer. She will read from Tread, her poetry collection that touches on mental health, childhood trauma, falling in love, heartbreak and self-loathing.
Corrine presented a moving multimedia performance at Alphabet City in April 2017, and we’re thrilled to welcome her back as we celebrate Pittsburgh literature and fight stigma!alphabet city, city of asylum, poetry
