Hen House at Home: Exposed: Capturing Personal Trauma
October 20 @ 4:00 pm
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.
