The Writer Moderates, Take 2

Left to Right: April Boland, Cynthia Juniper, Mary James, Michelle Mock.
A few weeks ago BookWoman hosted us once again to hold a panel on sexual violence. The panel featured Cynthia Juniper, author of Principles of Recovery from Abuse, Mary James, author of Destiny and the Magic of LaGrimas Creek, and Michelle Mock, a survivor of sexual assault. The discussion was fantastic, in my opinion, and addressed many important subjects for survivors as well as the general public. The best part was being able to meet and offer resources to victims who came out to learn and share insight. Thanks again to Susan Post, the manager of BookWoman, the panelists, and everyone who came out to promote healing.

The panel went so well, in fact, that I accepted the opportunity to write another piece for The Good Life, this time on child abuse. I am so thankful for yet another chance to speak out and hopefully make a dent in an enormous problem.
