Preston Hollow author Julie Hersh will celebrate the release of a Spanish translation of her book Struck by Living with a reception at at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Rosewood Center for Family Arts at Dallas Theater Center.
The nonfiction book chronicles Hersh’s bout with depression and her recovery beginning with electroconvolusive therapy.
The release of Decidi Vivir was prompted in part by the family of Jorge Correa, a Spanish teacher and community service director at St. Mark’s, who discovered the book after it was released in English in 2010, and translated the material for his wife when she was receiving treatment.
Hersh and Correa later collaborated on the translation, which will be available for free to 400 attendees on Tuesday. Click here for more information.
