Oak Knoll School is pleased to announce a discussion and book signing with Karen Fortunati, author of "The Weight of Zero," a story about a girl who has to deal not only with the standard pressures and stress of high school but also a much heavier weight – bipolar disorder. The story explores Catherine’s dark struggle to accept a diagnosis yet it is ultimately one of hope and resilience and finding support in the most unexpected places.

“This is a story of loss and grief and hope, and how some of the many shapes of love — maternal, romantic, and platonic — affect a young woman’s struggle with mental illness and the stigma of treatment.”

Free and open to the public.

Who: Adults

When: Thursday, January 24, 2019 at 1-2 p.m.
