Discussion at Houston's Murder by the Book on August 16, 1008, at 4:30 PM.

From Mothering to Madness: Houston’s Murder By The Book hosts an informative panel discussion examining women and madness from fiction and the front-pages

 

Attendees can expect an interesting afternoon at Houston’s Murder By The Books on Saturday, August 16, 2008 at 4:30 pm as psychiatric expert Dr. Debra Osterman and novelist Karen Harrington discuss incidents of women and madness in both the media and fiction.

 

The panel will be moderated by acclaimed novelist Rosemary Poole-Carter, whose recent release Women of Magdalene, explores mistreatment, misogyny and racism at a women’s mental asylum just after the Civil War.

 

Dr. Osterman was a staff psychiatrist for the Harris County Jail, who treated Andrea Yates 12 days after the June 2001 drowning deaths of her children.

 

Karen Harrington is the author of Janeology, a novel that centers on the aftermath of one Texas mother who murdered her own child.

 

Authors Harrington and Poole-Carter will also read from their works and discuss how history, recent and past, influenced the ideas behind their works.

 

Karen Harrington is the author of There's a Dog in the Doorway, and the recipient of honors from the Hemingway Short Story Festival, the Texas Film Institute Screenplay Contest, and the Writer's Digest National Script Contest.
