Patricia Eagle will speak about and sign her new book, Being Mean: A Memoir of Sexual Abuse and Survival, on Tuesday, July 16th at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
How does a child confused by episodes of abuse come to know what is safe or unsafe, right or wrong, normal or abnormal? In this richly depicted story, told in vignettes relative to markers of age and experience, Patricia Eagle reveals the heartbreak and destruction of her sexual abuse, from age four to thirteen, by her father. Being Mean is about blocking sexual abuse memories, having them surface, and learning how to live with incomprehensible experiences in the healthiest ways possible.
