Douglas and Susan Segal present STRUCK: A Husband’s Memoir of Trauma and Triumph at Santa Monica Public Library on Sunday, January 27, at 2 p.m. in the Main Library’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Auditorium, 601 Santa Monica Blvd.
After his wife and daughter were randomly hit head-on by a Los Angeles city bus, Douglas Segal began emailing updates to family and friends, forming the basis for this inspiring memoir. Alternatingly harrowing and humorous, heartbreaking and hopeful, Struck demonstrates the resilience of the human spirit, and serves as a profound example of how people show up for one another in times of crisis. Screenwriter and producer Dana Stevens moderates the talk.
A book sale and signing follows the program.
