Warrior Mother: Performing The Book

Sheila K. Collins, PhD

Author Sheila K. Collins has taken performances of her book Warrior Mother on the road.  Enlisting the help of local performers and practitioners of the improvisational system InterPlay, she has produced performances in Scotland at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, in Pittsburgh PA, Atlanta GA, Oakland CA. Seattle, Fort Worth, Dallas, and Austin TX.  In lieu of a traditional book reading, Sheila asks local performers to join their stories to hers as she reads and performs the themes suggested by her book, Warrior Mother: Fierce Love, Unbearable Loss and Rituals that Heal.  

 An opportunity to socialize and enjoy refreshments is usually  included because the experience often generates a willingness to discuss experiences of grief, loss, and recovery among the performers and audience members. Admission is free or by donation and books are available for sale to be signed by the author.
