DON'T LOSE SIGHT—coming soon!

About the Book

After a brush with blindness, Genevieve Chornenki sets her sights on answers and accountability. Who was responsible? What can be done to protect other people’s vision? How do our eyes work, anyway, and why does eyesight give so much pleasure? A newborn baby and a background in dispute resolution colour her enquiries, and the results aren’t always what she anticipated.  

     Don't Lose Sight is the author’s ongoing journey, pursued with humour, hubris, and tenacity.

About the Author

Genevieve Chornenki is a dispute resolution consultant and emerging writer based in Toronto, Canada. When she was in grade 4, the teacher noted on her report card, “Has excellent story-writing ability which should be encouraged as much as possible.” No one in the family noticed. Nor did first prize for poetry in high school relieve her of household chores like washing dishes and sweeping the kitchen floor. Eventually, she figured  out that writing is about persistence, not permission. It also helps to have something to say. 

     Genevieve holds Master of Laws in Alternative Dispute Resolution from Osgoode Hall Law School, a Certificate in Creative Writing from the University of Toronto, and a Certificate in Publishing from Ryerson University. Her works include Bypass Court: A Dispute Resolution Handbook and When Families Start Talking, a CBC Ideas radio documentary.
