Novelist Elizabeth Hay the guest speaker at Celebrate Women event May 1

Her new book 'All Things Consoled' speaks about becoming a caregiver for her parents

Bestselling novelist Elizabeth Hay brings her latest work to Sudbury May 1 at the 24th annual Celebrate Women event in support of local women’s organizations.  
According to Hay’s publisher, in “All Things Consoled” she has written a poignant, complex, and hugely resonant memoir about the shift she experienced between being her parents’ daughter to their guardian and caregiver.  
With candour and irresistible wit Hay offers insight into the complexities of a family’s dynamics to reach a deep understanding of her parents.  

She explores sibling rivalries and miscommunications, as well as genuine love and devotion.  

For the 24th consecutive year CFUW Sudbury has partnered with YWCA, and the Women’s Legal, Education and Action Fund (LEAF) to host this community event that provides Canadian female authors an opportunity to feature a recent book. Funds raised support services and scholarships for Sudbury women. 

The event takes place starting at 7:30 p.m. May 1 at Laurentian University's Fraser Auditorium. It includes a reception, book signing, and brief performance by Nickel City Sound singers.  

Tickets cost $10 each, and are available at Apollo Restaurant, Wellness Shoppe, LU Bookstore and at the door.
