Elise Schiller - Even If Your Heart Would Listen

Losing My Daughter to Heroin, a Memoir Book Talk & Signing

In January 2014, Elise Schiller's daughter, Giana Natali, died of a heroin overdose while a resident in a treatment program in Boulder. Schiller will discuss and sign Even If Your Heart Would Listen: Losing My Daughter to Heroin ($16.95 Sparkpress), a meditation on a family's grief, an intimate portrayal of a mother-daughter bond that endures, and an examination of how our nation is failing in its struggle with the opioid epidemic.

In this book, Schiller dissects her daughter's treatment for opioid use disorder at the five outpatient programs in eastern Pennsylvania where she tried to recover, taking a close look at the lack of continuity and solid medical foundations in the American substance-use treatment system even as she explores the deeply personal experience of her own loss.
