It's Release Day for "Celebration of Sisters" by Judy Lipson!

S For Story/10510282
A heartfelt memoir of a woman's journey to grieve the loss of her beloved sisters after thirty years by turning tragedy into Celebration through an annual ice skating fundraiser.

WAYNESVILLE, N.C. - s4story -- About the Book
For Judy Lipson, her sisters were her compass, constant, champions, and competitors and for thirty years she suppressed the grief of losing her two beloved sisters. Judy lost her younger sister Jane at age twenty-two in an automobile accident and nine years later her older sister Margie at age thirty-five to a twenty year battle with anorexia and bulimia. It was not until 2011 that Judge began her journey to mourn for Margie and Jane. Judy experienced the reality that those who lose siblings are the forgotten mourners and they are left to take care of their parents and children. The impact of their loss takes a back seat. This is a story of love, grief, and moving forward, even years after the loss.

Praise for Celebration of Sisters
"With her memoirCelebration of Sisters, Judy Lipson breaks her family's traditional code of silence by sharing her story—stark, candid, and impassioned: a love letter to her sisters. By describing her role as the middle sister in a sister trio, and remembering the lives and premature deaths of both of her sisters—one to a car accident, and the other to a chronic eating disorder—Judy bravely faces these great losses, and in turn, moves through her grief. Told through vivid memories from early childhood through adulthood, the arc of Judy's story engages the reader with its intimacy. The message, that talking openly about loss and mental health is healing, will resound with readers from all walks of life.– Kamryn T. Eddy, Ph.D. and Jennifer J. Thomas, Ph.D. Co-Directors, Eating Disorders Clinical and Research Program, Massachusetts General Hospital Associate Professors, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School.
