Heather B. Armstrong - The Valedictorian of Being Dead

The True Story of Dying Ten Times to Live, a Memoir Book Talk & Signing

Heather B. Armstrong, New York Times bestselling author and blogger, will discuss and sign The Valedictorian of Being Dead: The True Story of Dying Ten Times to Live ($26.00 Gallery Books), an honest and irreverent memoir about her experience as one of only a few people to participate in an experimental treatment for depression involving ten rounds of a chemically induced coma approximating brain death. 

In this book, Heather recalls the torturous eighteen months of suicidal depression she endured and the month-long experimental study in which doctors used propofol anesthesia to quiet all brain activity for a full fifteen minutes before bringing her back from a flatline. Ten times. The experience wasn’t easy. Not for Heather or her family. But a switch was flipped, and Heather hasn’t experienced a single moment of suicidal depression since. Disarmingly honest, self-deprecating, and scientifically fascinating, The Valedictorian of Being Dead brings to light a groundbreaking new treatment for depression
