Meet Megan Griswold,
The Book of Help:
A Memoir in Remedies
Tuesday, February 26th 7:30 PM
A heartbreakingly vulnerable and tragically funny memoir in remedies, Megan Griswold’s narrative spans four decades and six continents–from the glaciers of Patagonia and the psychotropics of Brazil to academia, the Ivy League, and the study of Eastern medicine.
Megan Griswold went to Barnard College, received an MA from Yale, and went on to earn a licentiate degree from the Institute of Taoist Education and Acupuncture. She has trained and received certifications as a doula, shiatsu practitioner, yoga instructor, personal trainer, and in wilderness medicine, among others. She has worked as a mountain instructor, a Classical Five Element acupuncturist, a freelance reporter, an NPR All Things Considered commentator and an off-the grid interior designer. She resides (mostly) in a yurt in Kelly, Wyoming.
