W.J.T. Mitchell, in conversation with Bill Ayers, discusses “Mental Traveler: A Father, a Son, and a Journey Through Schizophrenia”
September 17 @ 6:00 pmFree
How does a parent make sense of a child’s severe mental illness? How does a father meet the daily challenges of caring for his gifted but delusional son, while seeking to overcome the stigma of madness and the limits of psychiatry? W. J. T. Mitchell’s memoir tells the story–at once representative and unique–of one family’s encounter with mental illness and bears witness to the life of the talented young man who was his son.
