Lyme Awareness w/ Lynn Durand, MD & author Dana Biscotti Myskowski

Sunday, May 5 at 2 pm

in The Gallery

LYME AWARENESS MONTH

Lynn Durand, MD

joins author

Dana Biscotti Myskowski

for an informational discussion around Lyme Disease

Lyme disease. It’s prevalent, pervasive, and elusive. Inadequate testing protocols make diagnosing it difficult, meaning that many patients go without necessary treatments, needlessly resulting in a potpourri of longterm and sometimes devastating illnesses. Chronic Lyme disease is not even recognized by government agencies or many medical societies, which only prolongs suffering. But it doesn’t have to be this way, does it?

Dr. Lynn Durand, Lyme Literate Medical Doctor (LLMD) of Family Tree Health Care in Concord

Dana Biscotti Myskowski, author of the Lyme disease murder mystery,

I Cannot Play With You ...

While Lyme disease won't kill her, the man who infected her just may.

Please join us for a discussion about this vexing disease and other tick-borne co-infections.

Stick around for a BookEnds BookGroup discussion with the author right after!

Book Launch Party for Dana Biscotti Myskowski

 

Thursday, Dec. 13 at 3 pm

 

I Cannot Play With You

 

 

Please join us in The Gallery to celebrate

 

 

the release of this compelling mystery by

 

 

local author Dana Biscotti Myskowski,

 

screenwriter and Lyme survivor.

 

 

 

 

Sick with a disease that doesn’t officially exist, a state director for a U.S. Senator struggles to make sense of her boss’ suicide as she investigates the suspicious activities of the state’s other U.S. Senator and his sidekick, a nefarious rheumatologist—all while her best friend helps her manage her new and confusing symptoms of chronic Lyme. When she begins to suspect that her home, workplace, and car are littered with listening devices installed by some evildoer, she wonders if she’s crazy.  After all, her best friend seems to think she is.

 

 

Dana Biscotti Myskowski

 

 

After surviving several bouts of Lyme and related co-infections, award-winning screenwriter and Emmy-nominated producer Dana Biscotti Myskowski has found that her illness has introduced her to what's most important in life: family, friends, reading, writing, and meditation. A mom to two fabulous young adults, and married to her true love for 30-plus years, Dana finds herself caring for retired loved ones who now live with her and her husband, herding three dogs, writing, cooking, and designing a new home that will accommodate her newly extended family on land she and her husband purchased in Warner, NH.

    The book was recently published as a partnership effort with the Sunapee Lake Protective Association (SLPA), the John Hay Poetry Society and the Literary Arts Guild of the Center for the Arts).  Poets from the wider Kearsarge and Lake Sunapee region were invited to write a poem in response to award-winning photographs of Lake Sunapee and its watershed.  Several photos were taken by students and youth.   
    The event is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome! Light refreshments will be served.  The book and broader project highlight a unique interdisciplinary partnership between several non-profit organizations in the Sunapee region. The Visual Verse - Ripple Effects books will be available for signings by poets and purchase.  These one of a kind books created by local poets and artists; and inspired by Lake Sunapee, may make the perfect holiday gift for friends or family members. Books are also available at local shops and book stores.
             The Literary Arts Guild aims to support and promote the creative written arts in the small towns and rural communities of the Lake Sunapee region. Their projects build community through the arts, poetry and creative writing. This is their second Visual Verse publication.
