Community Chest COVER Final High-res

The year Natalie Serber turned 50, she published her first book, settled her daughter at college and was diagnosed with breast cancer. Community Chest is her fierce and funny memoir about fear and family, treatment decisions and the changed landscape of her body. Serber grapples with how to step fully back into life after confronting death, and along the way discovery that, after all, we are all bald underneath.


Natalie Serber is the author of the memoir Community Chest, recently published by Two Sylvias Press. Her shory story collection Shout Her Lovely Name, published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, was a New York Times Notable Book of 2012, a summer reading selection from O, the Oprah Magazine, and an Oregonian Top 10 Book of the Pacific Northwest. Natalie currently serves as a Board Director for a little nonprofit called Late Night Library.
