Join us to discuss Natural Killer , Harriet Alida Lye’s memoir of being diagnosed with a rare and malignant form of leukemia at just 15 years old. The book explores her survival against incredible odds and journey forward from this life-threatening illness.

Fifteen years after Harriet’s diagnosis, she learns she is pregnant, despite having been told that her chemotherapy treatment would likely make conception impossible.

This book explores what it's like to go from confronting a life-threatening illness, to learning how to trust your body's ability to recover and even create life.

The Canadian Women’s Foundation’s Tireless Readers Collective brings book lovers together with stellar writers who shine a spotlight on justice and gender equality. Join us in this exciting reading journey!

The Foundation is hosting this event in partnership with Penguin Random House Canada.
