End-of-Life Advocate and Award Winning Author Linda Campanella: Linda Campanella wrote When All That’s Left of Me Is Love very soon after her terminally ill mother’s death in 2009. The memoir, published in 2011, takes readers on an intimate and emotional journey from day of diagnosis through moment of death and into the few months of Linda’s coming to terms with the pain and permanence of her loss.
On Tuesday, Jan. 20, 6:30 p.m., Campanella will share her perspectives on love, loss, and legacy. She also will offer inspiring insights into what death teaches us about life–and how we live it.
Filled with love and lessons for living, When All That’s Left of Me Is Love has won numerous awards that include a gold medal in the Living Now 2012 Book Award program and a 2012 Nautilus Silver Award; and it was named a finalist in the 2013 Indie Excellence Book Awards.
Since her mother’s death and her book’s publication, Campanella has been a very vocal and passionate advocate for compassionate end-of-life care, largely out of gratitude for her family’s experience with hospice.
She is a management consultant, mother, and wife who lives in West Hartford. Before starting her own consulting company in 2001, she was chief administrative officer at Trinity College in Hartford, a senior executive at jet engine manufacturer Pratt & Whitney. She holds a bachelor’s degree in German from Amherst College and a master’s in international business from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service.
