Book Event-Forget Prayers, Bring Cake... with Merissa Nathan Gerson on Zoom

Please join us in welcoming Merissa Nathan Gerson to celebrate the publication of her new book, Forget Prayers, Bring Cake: A Single Woman's Guide to Grieving.  You'll find the Zoom link below.

Though at times it may seem impossible, we can heal with help from our friends and community- if we know how to ask. This heartrending, relatable account of one woman's reckoning with loss is a guide to the world of self-recovery, self-love, and the skills necessary to meeting one's own needs in these times of pain- especially when that pain is suffered alone.

Grief is all around us. In the world of today it has become common and layered, no longer only an occasional weight. A book needed now more than ever, Forget Prayers, Bring Cake is for people of all ages and orientations dealing with grief of any sort--professional, personal, romantic, familial, or even the sadness of the modern day. This book provides actions to boost self-care and self-worth; it shows when and how to ask for love and attention, and how to provide it for others. It shows that it is okay to define your needs and ask others to share theirs. In a moment in which community, affection, and generosity are needed more than ever, this book is an indispensable road map.

This book will be a guiding light to a healthier mental state amid these troubled times.

Merissa Nathan Gerson, author of Forget Prayers, Bring Cake: A Single Woman's Guide to Grieving, is a New Orleans-based writer, professor and sex educator. Her written work has appeared in The Atlantic, The New York Times, Playboy, and Tablet, among others, and she was the inherited trauma consultant for Amazon's Emmy Award winning television show, Transparent.
