After serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Zambia on a water sanitation and health education project, Cherie Kephart returned to the United States with an African souvenir that she didn’t expect: a debilitating illness that went misdiagnosed for years and nearly killed her. Her just-released memoir, A Few Minor Adjustments, chronicles the arduous journey to recovery and living with chronic pain. Kirkus Reviews declares the book, “A rich and complicated story, told on each page with clear dialogue and memorable anecdotes.” Stepping in at the last moment as our Saturday morning Special Guest Speaker, we’re thrilled to welcome Cherie back to the SCWC and can’t wait to hear her about her path to publication.
