Sarah Cannon - The Shame of Losing

Signing/Readings

Days before Sarah Cannonís thirty-third birthday, she receives a frightening phone call from her husbandís arborist colleague: Matt, her spouse of seven years and father to their two small children, has been severely injured by a falling tree branch. In a few moments, her visions of their future go dark, and she must learn how to care for the man she depended on for support. Faced with choices around how to behave in this roller-coaster journey, she takes as many steps back as she does forward, failing at times to see what needs to be done. In The Shame of Losing, Sarah offers a collection of playful diary entries, mock-love letters and considered vignettes to create meaning from a chaotic onslaught of changes.
