“Professor and Author Concha Alborg presents her newest work, Divorce After Death, a nonfiction description of the tumultuous aftermath following the death of her husband after a long battle with cancer. This loss produced unspeakable grief, but so did learning firsthand the anguish of betrayal. This memoir brings family, friends and colleagues to travel the journey of healing with the author and to understand how her bi-cultural background, self-deprecating humor and determination paved the way for her to find happiness, love and acceptance. This presentation commemorates International Women’s Day.”
