Things We Haven’t Said: Sexual Violence Survivors Speak Out is a powerful and timely nonfiction anthology addressing sexual violence toward children and adolescents. Join three of the contributors to this book – Laura H Kelly, Shanyn Kay, and Larena Patrick – as well as a representative from Center for Community Solutions, for a lively discussion about recovery, stigma, and their hopes for the future.
Things We Haven’t Said was written for young adults who are currently battling to survive sexual abuse, for those who are still recovering from sexual assault, and for anyone who is hoping to understand or help support others who have been through an experience of sexual violence. Each creative piece is followed by an “unfiltered interview” component so that the anthologists can speak plainly about finding their voice, recovery, families, PTSD, justice and much more. Included in the book is a practical resources section and a glossary of terms. This event is free and seating is first come, first serve.
