December Narrative Medicine Rounds with Sarika Talve-Goodman
For our last Rounds of the fall semester we are pleased to welcome back to our community Sarika Talve-Goodman, literary scholar, and somatic psychotherapist, who will join us for a discussion of her sister Adina Talve-Goodman's book, Your Hearts, Your Scars. Adina Talve-Goodman was born with a congenital heart condition and survived multiple operations over the course of her childhood, including a heart transplant at age nineteen. In the posthumously published Your Hearts, Your Scars, she tells the story of her chronic illness and her search for meaning and love, never forgetting that her adult life is tied to the loss of another person—the donor of her transplanted heart.
