On June 21, at 6:30 p.m, author and police officer Brian Knowler will visit the main branch to talk about how post-traumatic stress disorder affected his health, career and marriage.

In 2004, Brian Knowler was the first police officer at the scene of a fatal collision involving a close friend. For years he hid the physical and psychological effects, while his personal and professional life started to fall apart. He eventually sought help and was diagnosed with PTSD.

His book, On the Other Side of Broken: One Cop's Battle with the Demons of PTSD, tells the story about his life since being diagnosed and his recovery. It also talks about his wife's experiences; standing by him to help them rebuild their lives even though she watched her husband turn into someone she didn't recognize. Come to this free event to hear first-hand about Knowler's experiences.
