Best-selling author, philanthropist and breast cancer survivor Kelly Corrigan recently appeared at the Brazosport College Foundation’s first Women’s Lecture Luncheon Series of the year.

Corrigan regularly speaks on a wide range of topics, including caregiving, literacy, serious illness and the need for purpose.

She has written three books, including “The Middle Place,” a memoir about her experience fighting cancer while simultaneously caring for her father as he struggles through the final stages of the disease; “Lift,” a story that weaves together three true stories of adults willing to chance terrible loss in search of the joys of raising a family; and “Glitter and Glue,” which examines the bond between mothers and daughters.

During the luncheon at Brazosport College, Corrigan humorously and poignantly shared her most personal stories while offering plenty of inspiration for the audience.

The Women’s Lecture Luncheon Series is a series of events intended to help promote cultural enrichment for all women hosted by the Brazosport College Foundation.

This year’s Women’s Lecture Luncheon Series has two more events scheduled, with art historian and critic Tina Rivers Ryan on February 15, followed by Green Beret and amputee John Wayne Walding on April 5.
