Charlotte Maya’s Journey Through Loss and Resilience

Published on Feb 26, 2023

On a beautiful fall afternoon, Charlotte Maya went on a hike with her two sons and their family dog. When she returned home, she was met with a devastating tragedy. A policewoman, a policeman, and a priest were waiting in her driveway to deliver the news of her husband’s suicide. In the wake of this shocking event, Charlotte was faced with the difficult task of finding answers, acceptance, and family resilience.

Charlotte shares her story in her memoir, Sushi Tuesdays: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Family Resilience. In the book, she describes the intimate moments, powerful lessons, and practical ways in which she coped with her husband’s suicide and helped her sons navigate their grief. As a young widow, Charlotte cried, cursed, meditated, medicated, downward-dogged, and ran as a way to make sense of her loss.

In an upcoming free event sponsored by Vroman’s Bookstore, Charlotte will discuss her memoir with Rev. Mike Kinman, of Pasadena’s All Saints Church. She will share her experiences and insights on how to move forward and find joy and purpose after experiencing a traumatic loss. Charlotte’s story is a testament to the power of resilience and the importance of seeking support during difficult times.

The event will take place on Tuesday, February 28, 2023, at 7:00 p.m. at All Saints Church, 132v B. Euclid Ave., Pasadena. For more information and to register for the event, please call 626-449-5320 or visit the Vroman’s Bookstore website. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Charlotte’s inspiring story of love, loss, and family resilience.
