Join us for A Conversation and Q&A with Memoirist, Liz Kinchen
Author of Light in Bandaged Places: Healing in the Wake of Young Betrayal
When a lonely young girl meets a teacher twice her age, she is seduced into a web of deceit and secrecy-an experience that teaches her that sex in exchange for attention feels like love, even as it destroys her self-worth. Here, Liz Kinchen offers a detailed view of exactly how this abusive experience influenced her adult relationships, and how her eventual healing unfolded.
