A Reading and Conversation with Julia Laughlin
The River and the Sea: A Story of Forgiveness tells the story of the thirty years it took Julia Laughlin to heal from the sexual assault she suffered at the age of twenty-one. The River and the Sea recounts the inspiring story of Julia’s survival—not only of the attack and its aftermath, but also her tenacious struggle to find her way to heal. Julia’s story takes place on the shores of the Tasman Sea in New Zealand, where she spent five weeks reflecting and writing her way through swirling currents of thirty years of deep pain in order to share her story.
Please join us in celebrating the release of The River and the Sea with appetizers, non-alcoholic beverages and wine for purchase, and conversation as we join in the effort to end sexual violence in honor of October’s National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
