HOW SPIN CAME TO BE
In May 2009 Nancy's life would abruptly change. Two days after receiving the news that her mother had terminal cancer and would be best served in hospice care, a fatal shooting occurred in the cafe of the college bookstore Nancy managed. One week later, Nancy's mother passed away.
The experience left Nancy pondering ripple effect of violence as it reaches out far beyond those immediately impacted to touch and alter countless lives. Exploring the many questions about life and death, empathy and the power of forgiveness led Nancy to write SPIN.
SPIN is the story of two families touched by violence and loss. It's a journey through grief, anger, love, forgiveness, and acceptance. In our short time together on this earth, we often forget that we are connected in amazing and unexpected ways. We are all spinning together through this life, creating our world as we go. SPIN explores that journey through two families' experience.
