Local author Bridgid Ruden will talk about her new book, Discovering My Life's Purpose: From Tragedy to Triumph!  In 2008, Ruden suffered severe traumatic brain injury following a bicycle accident. Her life resumed as if she were a three-year-old having to relearn many of the life skills that she lost as a result of her injury. This story chronicles her journey – waxing and waning – towards healing.

"Bridgid's presentation as a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) survivor is profound, miraculous and engaging. Her voice of expression paints the terrain of every emotion that one goes through when life presents a major shift in who you are, what you do and how you navigate through breath at a time."
—Dr. Jane F. Bourgeois
