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.
