Hidden Lives: Coming Out On Mental Illness

"Hidden Lives: Coming out on Mental Illness" is a book of essays edited by Lenore Rowntree and Andrew Boden.
Both are writers and both have family members living with mental illness.
Together they sought out other writers with a desire to speak about their experiences with mental illness.
One of those writers is Andrea Paquette....who's been known to call herself the Bipolar Babe.
The conversation with Lenore Rowntree and Andrea Paquette airs Sunday (Nov 4) after the 8:30 news.

There will be a book launch November 8 at the Cellar Jazz Club.
