FESTIVAL OF TREES
Deanna Fei in the News
Deanna Fei became an award-winning author with the publication of her debut novel, but there was one story she could not bring herself to tell — the story of her daughter’s birth. Fei could not imagine sharing the details of how her second child entered the world 3½ months too soon and weighing just 1 pound, 9 ounces. It seemed too painful to tell people about the birth that one doctor described as a “catastrophic” event that would have been considered a miscarriage had it occurred just two decades earlier.
But when someone else told that story as an example of out-of-control corporate health care spending, Fei knew that it was time for her to deliver a different message, one about the value of human life and the stigma that families sometimes face simply because their children need medical care. It is the message of her book, “Girl in Glass,” and one she will share in Greenville next month on behalf of the Family Support Network of Eastern North Carolina.
