One Friday in April: A story of suicide and survival by Donald Antrim

May 17 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Riverbend Community Mental Health, Inc joins Gibson’s Bookstore in welcoming author Donald Antrim into the bookstore for a talk and signing for Antrim’s book, One Friday in April: A Story of Suicide and Survival, a searing and brave memoir that offers a new understanding of suicide as a distinct mental illness.

Named One of TIME‘s 100 Must-Read Books of 2021, one of BuzzFeed’s Best Books of 2021, one of Vulture’s Best Books of 2021, and named one of the Most Anticipated of Books of 2021 by the Los Angeles TimesLiterary Hub, and The Millions, this will not be an event to miss! Through a clear and haunting reckoning with the author’s own story, One Friday in April confronts the limits of our understanding of suicide. Donald Antrim’s personal insights reframe suicide—whether in thought or in action—as an illness in its own right, a unique consequence of trauma and personal isolation, rather than the choice of a depressed person.
