Ambrosio will read excerpts from her memoir Life Continues: Facing the Challenges of MS, Menopause & Midlife with Hope, Courage & Humor and sign copies.
“I'm very excited to appear at Global Gallery because I have the opportunity during the holiday season to share the ways I use laughter and hope to cope with illness and aging,” Ambrosio said. “Plus, anyone who attends my book signing will have the chance to browse and support a shop filled with handmade items from around the world.”
Life Continues has appealed to people who have chronic conditions, their caregivers, relatives and friends as well as other readers who are not ill. Midwest Book Review says Life Continues has “a simple and powerful message for other aging women” and is “very highly recommended”
