Join Cambridge author Steven Wineman for a book reading and signing event celebrating his new release, The Therapy Journal, from Golden Antelope Press. The novel follows the lives of two women in the aftermath of sex trafficking and childhood sexual abuse. A literary companion piece to his previous book Power-Under: Trauma and Nonviolent Social Change, this story chronicles the struggle to break the stranglehold of trauma and live a life in which human connection and joy remain possible.
Advance praise for The Therapy Journal:
“This is a powerful, moving novel, rich in humanity and uncompromising in its honesty….The characters weave together in a haunting, delicate dance, leaving the reader unable to hide from the raw violence of life, but with hope too that it doesn’t always have to be this way….A rare gift.” –Neil Howard, author of Child Trafficking, Youth Labour Mobility and the Politics of Protection
“This book was a heart-opener for me….Now I feel the power and unpredictability of trauma and marvel at the resilient human drive to healing.” -Louise Dunlap, author of Undoing the Silence: Six Tools for Social Change Writing
