Join Elizabeth Benedict, novelist and author of the memoir “Rewriting Illness: A View of My Own” in conversation with journalist and author Gabrielle Glaser on Wednesday, May 31 at 7:00 p.m. at Watchung Booksellers.

By turns somber and funny but above all provocative, Elizabeth Benedict’s unconventional memoir tells the story of her cancer diagnosis and committed hypochondria with wisdom and self-effacing wit.

Benedict’s novels include the national bestseller, Almost, and the National Book Award finalist, Slow Dancing.
