APB Speaker Nora McInerny Shares with NPR Her Expertise on Facing Life's Rough Edges
29 Apr 2021
NPR interviewed APB speaker Nora McInerny on the topic of how one can move forward when experiencing grief or hardship. An expert on facing life’s rough edges, McInerny shares ideas on how to live life fully even when you experience loss.
During the conversation, McInerny focuses on how the U.S. needs to have better systems of taking time off from work for those who are grieving and she shares her own experience with this. In addition, she emphasizes the idea of moving forward with grief and that it is possible to come out the other side with laughter.
Nora McInerny specializes in difficult topics by drawing from her own story of profound loss: during six hellish weeks in 2014, Nora miscarried her second baby, lost her Dad to cancer and became a widow at age 31 when her husband died from brain cancer. In the ensuing years, Nora became a "reluctant grief specialist" and engages with audiences on a deeply personal and universally human level.
