Atria Aquidneck Place
Home to pioneers who helped elevate generations of women by breaking barriers in the workplace and society, Atria Aquidneck Place welcomes families, friends and the greater community to hear from residents and special guests whose accomplishments continue to influence and inspire. Headlining this event is local author, Kelly Kittel.
During this panel, Kittel will discuss her memoir, ‘Breathe’….
Kelly Kittel never questioned her Mayflower Society mantra—“Family is the most important thing”—until the day her fifteen-month-old son was run over by her sixteen-year-old niece. Nine months later, Kittel’s doctor made a terrible mistake during her subsequent pregnancy and she found herself burying yet another baby. Caught up in the maelstrom of a malpractice lawsuit, Kittel and her husband battle not only the medical system, but their own relatives, in the courtroom. As their family tree begins to topple, the Kittels struggle to nourish the roots of their young family and find healing. Achingly raw and beautifully narrated, Breathe is a story of motherhood, death, and family in the face of unspeakable tragedy and, ultimately, how she learns to breathe again.
