THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Days before Sarah Cannon’s 33 birthday, she receives a frightening phone call from her husband’s arborist colleague: Matt, her spouse of seven years and father to their two small children, has been severely injured by a falling tree branch. In a few moments, her visions of their future go dark, and she must learn how to care for the man she depended on for support. Faced with choices around how to behave in this roller-coaster journey, she takes as many steps back as she does forward, failing at times to see what needs to be done. In The Shame of Losing, Sarah offers a collection of playful diary entries, mock-love letters and considered vignettes to create meaning from a chaotic onslaught of changes.
Sarah Cannon grew up in the north-end suburbs of Seattle, and graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Spanish. She earned her MFA from Goddard College in 2014.

Sarah is active with the Brain Injury Alliance of WA and offers creative writing classes at community centers. She lives in Edmonds, WA with her family, where she is a Technical Content Editor.
