The Utah Humanities Book Festival presents Susan Sample | Voices of Teenage Transplant Survivors: Miracle-Like

The National Kidney Foundation for Utah and Idaho is grateful to present Survivors: What it Means to Teens with Heart, Liver, and Kidney Transplants, featuring a virtual conversation with author Susan Sample and her book, Voices of Teenage Transplant Survivors: Miracle-Like.

Register here:

Popular media often focuses on the drama of organ transplants--waiting on transplant lists or enduring long surgeries--not the unpredictability of post-transplant life. In Voices of Teenage Transplant Survivors: Miracle-Like, Susan J. Sample shares stories from poetry workshops held for 12 years at the National Kidney Foundation of Utah and Idaho’s Youth Transplant Kamp where adolescents explored the physical, emotional, and existential challenges of being survivors. Along with Sample, many of the young authors will read their poetry and discuss how they continue to live with hope and gratitude.
