Marguerite Bouvard on Chronic Illness, Healing and Gender
Marguerite Bouvard is a true multidisciplinarian. As a poet, nonfiction writer, and political scientist, she’s published 15 books, covering everything from the Madres of the Plaza de Mayo to feminism and aging to the role of prayer in hard times.
Her most recent title is Healing: A Life with Chronic Illness, which is described as a “practical and spiritual guide.” Bouvard focuses on her experience living with interstitial cystitis, among other illnesses.
Bouvard is part of the Women’s Studies Research Center at Brandeis University and is a regular contributor to Women’s Voices for Change, an online community which seeks to transform the way older women fit into our culture.
