Author Talk: Judy Foreman - Let the More Loving One Be Me

2:00 PM – 3:30 PM

Description

Award-winning journalist and author Judy Foreman discusses her 2023 nonfiction book, Let the More Loving One Be Me.

Millions of children face the trauma of physical, sexual or emotional abuse each year. Judy Foreman – journalist, author, survivor – was one of them. Join her as she talks of her compelling journey of healing from serious childhood trauma to a life of deep fulfillment, rewarding work and, most wonderfully, love. It is her story about how, with effort, determination and therapy, one can summon the power of emotional courage to change one’s own inner and outer life. It is a story with important lessons for anyone confronting the challenges of trauma, past or present.
