Read more... Schizophrenia Books, TV, Movies & Plays
Pam Wagner (who writes WagBlog on our site) and her sister's new book is out and their publicity tour is going well. We think its great to see a family that has suffered through schizophrenia come out with their own story in print. Its a great accomplishment for Pam and her sister, and a great educational book for everyone to learn more about the disease.
Following is an excerpt from a recent newspaper article on their book launch:
"Divided Minds: Twin Sisters and Their Journey Through Schizophrenia" with articles in "Reader's Digest," "People" and the New York "Times" on authors identical twins, Pam Spiro Wagner and Carolyn Spiro. Already they're booked on "Good Morning America," and the book isn't even published yet.
On Wednesday, Aug. 24, the day "Divided Minds" comes out, out the sisters visit the West Hartford Town Hall for a book talk sponsored by the West Hartford Public Library.
"Take it one step at a time," is how Pam Wagner described her attitude toward all the excitement. "That's the best thing I can do, the only thing I can do. "
Wagner is a published poet; her work has earned the 1993 Connecticut Mental Health Media Award, two first places in the "Tunxis Poetry Review," and the 2002 BBC International Poetry Award. She's also schizophrenic, a diagnosis she received around 1985.
The book is now published and available on Amazon at the following link: Divided Minds: Twin Sisters and Their Journey Through Schizophrenia
