Join us as Jean Hargadon Wehner presents her memoir, Walking with Aletheia on Saturday, June 4th at 3 p.m. at City Lights Bookstore. Walking with Aletheia relates the author’s experiences of sexual abuse by, at first, a great-uncle, then by a network of priests and others who worked at her Catholic high school in Baltimore, MD. Walking with Aletheia is also about hope and survival.
“An astonishingly vivid “survival document” by a courageous writer who spent several decades healing from numerous rapes by Catholic priests and cops at a Catholic girl’s high school in Baltimore. This shocking memoir is a “must-read” for all those who are determined to stop the sexual abuse of children.” — Tom Nugent, author of Death at Buffalo Creek, and a reporter on the Emmy-nominated docuseries The Keepers.
