Writers LIVE: Charita Cole Brown: Defying the Verdict: My Bipolar Life

Enoch Pratt Free Library

During her final semester of college, Charita Cole Brown suffered a psychotic episode frighteningly reminiscent of her grandmother's own breakdown and subsequent hospitalization. Afterward, she was diagnosed with an extreme form of bipolar disorder. Vowing to remain honest, Brown details her struggle after her diagnosis—a life full of love, hope, and success in Defying the Verdict: My Bipolar Life. A retired educator, she is committed to helping others create strategies to defy their personally challenging verdicts.

Charita Cole Brown earned a BA in English from Wesleyan University and an MAT in Early Childhood Education from Towson University in Maryland. She is now retired and lives in Baltimore with her two daughters.

Charita Cole Brown will be in conversation with Emma Snyder, owner of The Ivy Bookshop.
