Event

University Book Store and Cancer Pathways present Jeff Henigson
Join us for an evening with author and cancer survivor Jeff Henigson! Jeff will talk about his extraordinary teenage battles - one against brain cancer and another for world peace that are captured in his memoir, Warhead: The True Story of One Teen Who Almost Saved the World (Delacorte Press). Warhead is an often hilarious and always relevant memoir about one teen boy's battle with brain cancer and his Starlight Children's Foundation wish: to meet Mikhail Gorbachev in Russia and plead for nuclear disarmament and world peace. Terry Tazioli will moderate an audience Q&A.

The event is free, but we ask those attending to buy a copy of the book and donate one to Cancer Pathways.

About the Author
Jeff Henigson grew up in South Pasadena, California. After a teenage battle with brain cancer, he attended university at the London School of Economics and graduate school at Columbia Universitys School of International and Political Affairs. He has worked for UNICEF and the United Nations in humanitarian emergencies, and for a nonprofit in human rights. He has lived in London, Seoul, Rome, Beijing, New York, St. Petersburg (Russia, not Florida), and Ko Samui, a beautiful island in the Gulf of Thailand. Today he calls Seattle home. You can find him paddling on Lake Washington or, alternatively, on Twitter at @jeffhenigson or on his website at jeffhenigson.com.
