Peak into the diaries of Mallory Smith, a remarkable young woman who was determined to live a meaningful and happy life despite her struggle with cystic fibrosis and a rare superbug – from age fifteen to her death at the age of twenty-five. This event is FREE.  Register by Friday, October 18.

“You might think that a book written by a young woman with cystic fibrosis who died at age 25 would be sad. In the case of the late Mallory Smith’s Salt in My Soul: An Unfinished Life… you’d be wrong.  Her mother, Diane Shader Smith, is forever grateful that her daughter left such an honest and open legacy. Reading all those pages for the first time while suffering catastrophic grief, Shader Smith realized that she could distill Mallory’s words into a book that would help people dealing with illness, healthcare, coming-of-age and other issues.”  – The San Diego Union Tribune
