The Group: Seven Widowed Fathers Reimagine Life -- A Reading and Book Signing
The Regulator welcomes Donald Rosenstein & Justin Yopp, co-authors of The Group: Seven Widowed Fathers Reimagine Life --a book that chronicles the challenges and triumphs of seven men whose wives died from cancer and were left to raise their young children alone. Rosenstein and Yopp, co-leaders of the support group, weave together the fathers’s stories with contemporary research on grief and adaptation. The Group traces a compelling journey of healing and personal discovery; the men’s touching efforts to care for their families, grieve for their wives, and reimagine their futures will inspire anyone who has suffered a major loss.
