PINK!

BY DR. PAUL SHALOM RHODES
ILLUSTRATED BY SHIMRA STARR

PINK! is a gently fictionalized family memoir that begins in the early 1930s, as it follows a naive little girl's fancies and fantasies when she and her mother visit her clinically depressed grandmother at the Blackwell’s Island Hospital in New York’s East River — once the actual site of Nellie Bly’s harrowing account of Ten Days in a Madhouse The same redemptive love that eventually allays young Claire’s fears is carried through six generations of women…imbuing an aura of hope and resolution.

PINK! is especially engaging for young and adult readers who have encountered clinical depression, in themselves or others, and observed the thorny pursuit of recovery.

Art and books signed by the author and illustrator will be available for purchase after the reading.
