The Friends of Lane Memorial Library will be kicking off 2020 with an author series showcasing local and regional authors. Each event will feature an author discussing their books, describing their writing methods and practices, and question and answer time. Refreshments and a book signing will follow each presentation.
Brian Hall, author of Not Afraid to Fall, a book that details his journey with Parkinson's Disease, will join us at the library on on a date to be determined.
When his symptoms first appeared in 1976 at the age of 14, Brian really had no idea how serious a medical battle or the toll that it might take on him. However, as time went by it became abundantly clear that he was now in the fight of his life. For the majority of those 43 years, finding a balanced lifestyle and a healthy way to deal with his medical situation was to say at the very least, elusive. Eventually, Brian did find balance by making a commitment to his own unique and unorthodox approach to counteract the symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
On the outside looking in, some people might think that Parkinson's disease has ruined Brian's life. Quite the contrary! His experience with the disease has undoubtedly impacted and restricted some aspects of how he lives his life. This is to be expected. It also has liberated him in ways that he never could have imagined. The gift in the real-life lessons that PD has taught him, he hopes to share with the many people afflicted with this disease, their caregivers and others that might be suffering from unresolved traumatic issues impacting their lives.
