Matthew Sanford

When: Wed., Nov. 5, 7 p.m. 2014

When he was 13 years old, Matthew Sanford was in a horrific car accident. It killed his father and sister, and left him paralyzed from the chest down. Rather than succumb to the loss, Sanford dedicated himself to the pursuit of wellness. Now a nationally recognized yoga teacher and public speaker, he founded Mind Body Solutions, a nonprofit that serves people living with trauma, loss and disability. Sanford captures his harrowing journey from tragedy to triumph in Waking: A Memoir of Trauma and Transcendence, an award-winning account that the Utne Reader considers "a riveting, heartbreaking, heart-opening saga."
