A Stepping Stones Books and Gifts Free Event
Cry of the Nightbird:
Writers Against Domestic Violence
with editors Michelle Wing
Ann Hutchinson and Kate Farrell
Date: Friday, October 2
Time: 7 pm
Center for Spiritual Living, Santa Rosa
2075 Occidental Road
In Cry of the Nightbird: Writers Against Domestic Violence, thirty-eight writers speak out in more than fifty prose and poetry pieces of a hidden tragedy: violence in homes, living in fear, and forced silence. Authors from every walk of life and every aspect of this difficult issue raise their voices as one to end this silence, to bring freedom and release for themselves and others. These words will inform and inspire readers: give them eyes to see, a way to express, and motivation to act.
Michelle Wing, Ann Hutchinson and Kate Farrell are three Sonoma County residents who became involved in the five-year project, Changing Hurt to Hope: Writers Speak Out Against Domestic Violence. Together, they edited the results of the project and worked together to get Cry of the Nightbird published to make the message available to a broader audience.
Michelle, Ann and Kate will be speaking about the project and the book, which also contains a resource guide for services in Sonoma County, the state and the nation, a basic introduction to the dynamics of domestic violence, a reading list and a history of the Changing Hurt to Hope project.
