Author Rebecca Anderson and artist/author Laurie Phillips talk about the healing journey into art and narrative they took together after the death by suicide of Rebecca’s husband, Don, in 2002. Their journey resulted in five unique illustrated books, a series entitled Suicide Survivors’ Club: A Family’s Journey Through the Death of Their Loved One. Winner of a 2017 Midwest Book Award for Autobiography/Memoir, the books tells a story of healing and creativity, and demonstrate the power of visual narrative to help a family regain its balance after a tragedy.
