This event is free to attend and will be held on Crowdcast. Register here.

One unremarkable day at the age of 37 Seth Greenland finds himself in everyone’s nightmare -- a routine doctor visit, some swollen glands, a series of tests, a biopsy, and finally a diagnosis of an aggressive form of lymphatic cancer. A screenwriter and satirist with a blooming career in Hollywood, Seth has felt pretty good about his life until now; suddenly, the world has tipped on its axis.

With the support of friends and family, Seth launches into an attempt to save his own life without losing either his sanity or his sense of humor. From chemotherapy treatments, to meditation and more alternative treatments, he battles the disease with wit, honesty, and no small amount of sheer terror. There are no pat answers or inspirational revelations here, just one man confronting hopes and fears recognizable to us all -- and triumphing.

Seth Greenland is an award-winning playwright, screenwriter, and author of five novels including Shining City and The Hazards of Good Fortune. His play Jungle Rot won the Kennedy Center/American Express Fund For New American Plays Award and the American Theater Critics Association Award. He was a writer-producer on the HBO drama Big Love. His work has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, the Los Angeles Review of Books, Le Figaro, Le Monde, Quillette, the Jewish Journal, and Lions Roar.

Tom Teicholz is an award-winning journalist and best-selling author who lives in Santa Monica.

The Los Angeles Review of Books is a reader-supported literary and cultural arts nonprofit.
