Larkspur - "Tell Me Again" Group Reading with David Watts

Larkspur Events

David Watts at Diesel BookstoreDiesel, A Bookstore in Larkspur welcomes David Watts and other contributors of Tell Me Again: Poetry and Prose from the Healing Art of Writing, 2012  to the store for a group reading on Sunday, May 18th at 3pm.

For more than a decade The Healing Art of Writing conference has sought to strengthen compassionate understanding between healthcare providers and those who seek a state of well-being beyond the reach of surgery or pharmacology. Together, the participants share the belief that being cured of disease is not the same thing as being healed, and that a practice of expressive writing promotes both spiritual and physical healing. The writings presented at the 2012 conference, collected here in Tell Me Again, are a powerful testament to that belief. Within these pages you will hear, again and again, words of truth, words that uplift, words that heal.

David Watts is a Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCSF and the author of Bedside Manners: One Doctor's Reflections on the Oddly Intimate Encounters Between Patient and Healer.
