Lauren spent a decade in professional theatre and pursued a PhD at The Graduate Center at City University of New York. When she was twenty-seven, she suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm. She woke up in a hospital with impairments to her reading, speaking, and writing abilities, and a diagnosis: aphasia.

Lauren will be reading from her memoir “A Stitch of Time,” to be published next year by Simon & Schuster. You can read (and hear) more at her website: http://www.astitchoftime.com/

 

The event will also include interactive exhibits and artwork co-created by clients at the Communication Clinic for this year’s Bloomsbury Festival. More on this soon!
