Best-Selling Author Susannah Cahalan
Best-selling author Susannah Cahalan will discuss her book "Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness." She will answer questions and sign copies of her book during the event.

In the book, Cahalan recounts the day that she woke up in a strange hospital room, strapped to a bed, under guard, and unable to move or speak. Cahalan’s memoir chronicles the swift path of her illness and the lucky, last-minute intervention led by one of the few doctors capable of saving her life. Her award-winning work has appeared in the New York Times, Psychology Today, Scientific American, BBC's Focus magazine, and Elle. She now is the New York Post’s book editor and is working on a new book about the history of psychiatry, Committed, due out in 2017.
