Hen House at Home: Exposed: Capturing Personal Trauma

October 20 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT

It’s difficult to capture traumatic personal events in a memoir. How do you do it? We ask two memoirists from Red Hen Press’s Fall 2021 season: Jan Beatty, author of AMERICAN BASTARD, explores her journey trying to find her birth parents. Joan Nockels Wilson’s THE BOOK OF TIMOTHY: THE DEVIL, MY BROTHER, AND ME shares her experiences as she searches for the priest who molested her brother as a child.

Both of these memorists explore their pain and family trauma in powerful ways. We’ll discuss what the process was like, putting their deeply personal experiences on paper.

Viewable LIVE on Wednesday, October 20 at 4:00pm PT at www.redhen.org/virtual, www.youtube.com/redhenpress, and www.facebook.com/redhenpress.
