Bring your lunch and come discuss the making of the just released volume, Dear Sister:Letters from Survivors of Sexual Violence with the editor, Lisa Factora-Borchers. Hear some of the stories captured in the book and learn from Lisa about the process of collecting the inspiring and empowering letters from women around the world and getting them into print.
Dear Sister shares the lessons, memories, and vision of over fifty artists, activists, mothers, writers, and students who share their stories of survival or what it means to be an advocate and ally to survivors. Written in an epistolary format, this multi-generational, multi-ethnic collection of letters and essays is a moving journey into the hearts and minds of the survivors of rape, incest, and other forms of sexual violence, written directly to and for other survivors.
