The Heart Too Long Suppressed: A Reading with Carol Hebald


April 20, 2013

Program Locations:

Join us as we celebrate the 12 year anniversary of her groundbreaking memoir. Hailed by both Library Journal and Booknews as "stirring" and "enthralling", and author Gail Godwin " as the best book of its kind I can remember", The Heart Too Long Suppressed is a vivid account of one woman's struggle with a diagnosis that she refused to let define her. Ms. Hebald will be reading from her work and lead a discussion after.


About the author: A former associate professor of English at University of Kansas, Carol Hebald resigned her tenure in 1984 to write full time. She has since published two poetry collections from March Street Press: SPINSTER BY THE SEA (2005) and LITTLE MONOLOGS (2004); the memoir, THE HEART TOO LONG SUPPRESSED (Northeastern University Press, 2001), and a novella collection, THREE BLIND MICE (Unicorn Press, 1989).
