NESTcafé: Reimagining Your Life for Fun and Fulfillment

September 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

What do you consider to be one of the most significant times of your life before you were 30 years old? Bring a picture of yourself from that time and join novelist and NEST member Dorothy Van Soest in a process of reimagining/recreating your life back then and see what insights you might discover. Using her latest mystery Death, Unchartered as an example, Dorothy will share what she learned by rewriting/recreating herself and some of the events that occurred during the turbulent 1960s and then invite you to similarly explore a significant period in your life. Ravenna Third Place Books will have copies of Dorothy’s novels for purchase for those interested.

Dorothy Van Soest, MSW, PhD, is Professor Emeritus and former dean of the School of Social Work at the University of Washington, Seattle. A writer, social worker and activist, she has published ten books including her debut novel Just Mercy (2014), and more than 50 journal articles, essays and book chapters that tackle complex issues related to violence, oppression, and injustice.

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
