Author Evonne Agnello will talk about her memoir Shaking Shame from Mental Illness. The suicide of her father hit Evonne hard. When her brother followed suit four years later, she wondered if fate would send her along the same path. With sensitivity, Evonne explores mental illness from both sides - within the mind of the sufferer and of those watching the one suffering - and sends hope for all. She shows that depression is highly treatable and manageable and need not poison your life. One can emerge from the depths of despair and find reasons to dance in the sun. Evonne Agnello grew up in Seward, Nebraska where her family owned a weekly newspaper. She worked in newspapers for over 30 years, in the Pacific Northwest in Bend, OR and Vancouver, WA. The last 15 years of her newspaper career were were with Pacific Northwest Newspaper Association, a nonprofit trade association of daily newspapers, which she was Executive Director of for 8 years. As an advocate of mental illness awareness, she is a member of NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
