FemCity Orlando to Welcome Local Author Vashon Marie Sarkisian
(Orlando, FL – August 28, 2013) Join FemCity Orlando in welcoming Winter Park resident and new author Vashon Marie Sarkisian as she discusses the life-changing events that led to her first book. The discussion will be geared toward any sort of loss — death of a loved one, loss of a job, philosophy, etc.
The evening begins at 6 p.m. Tuesday, September 24, 2013, at Urban Rethink, 625 E. Central Blvd., in downtown Orlando.
Sarkisian’s book, Finding Joy After Loss, My Seven-Step Journey of Transforming Grief into Joy, was the result of her turning to writing as a tool to cope with the loss of her husband, Patrick James McCarty, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2005 and died three years later.
It was during her writing that she discovered a path to her healing, and ultimately found a path to joy. She outlines seven simple steps in Finding Joy After Loss, My Seven-Step Journey of Transforming Grief into Joy that led her down that path. In the end, she found something she had not expected.
Those attending the discussion are also encouraged to bring items to benefit the Kids House Wayne Densch Children’s Advocacy Center, such as full-size toiletries, shoes and clothing. For a list of specific items, please contact FemCity President Leah Nash at .
For more information or to register, email , call 407.758.5324, or visit www.femfessionals.com/femcities/Orlando.htm. Pre-registration is necessary to attend.
