On Thursday, October 27 at 6:00 p.m., there will be an event for So Much to Be Done: The Writings of Breast Cancer Activist Barbara Brenner at the Brighthelm Centre in Brighton, UK, with readings by Grazia De Michele, Nick Mole, and Susie Lampert. This event is organized by Pesticide Action Network UK (PAN UK).
The power behind the national organization Breast Cancer Action, Barbara Brenner brought an abundance of wit, courage, and clarity to the cause and forever changed the conversation. Brenner’s columns and blog posts, collected in So Much to Be Done, form a chronicle of breast cancer research and health care activism that is as inspiring as it is informative.
"A visionary like Barbara Brenner comes along so rarely, and when such a person has left a wealth of insightful commentary filled with brilliant analyses and trenchant wit, we are doubly fortunate. Social justice activists, breast cancer and consumer advocates, academics, feminists, and anyone else interested in how breast cancer intersects with other key environmental and women's health concerns will find this edited collection of Barbara's writings a treasure trove of tools and ideas for making this world a better place for all." —Judy Norsigian, cofounder, Our Bodies Ourselves
"Why should you read this book? Because this is not another pity-party book written by someone with a life-threatening illness. Not once does she mourn for her losses—instead Brenner always shows the world that she is still capable, still living, still loving, and still fighting." —Lambda Literary
