Truth: Voices of Women changed by Cancer
This is the February Books and Brews Book.Truth is an empowering collection of writing from real women who have all heard the words, “You have cancer.” Their poems, short essays and journal entries are not mere testimonials, they are works of the heart and the imagination. The writing was born from workshops by Whistle Words, a project using writing as a tool for women to reclaim their sense of selves. Guided in groups through prompts and outside-the-box activities, the women explored memories, relationships, hopes and fears and shared them with each other – and now with you.
In Truth, you will learn who these women are, and bare witness to their intimate personal and collective reflections. You will also be guided through a series of prompts, so that you, too, can experience the power that comes with picking up a pen and speaking your truth.
