I want to thank the Longbranch Coffeehouse for inviting me to participate in their author series. The book reading/discussion was held before a lively audience who offered up several interesting questions. My book, “Mnemosyne: A Love Affair with Memory,” has served as a vehicle for discussing one of society’s biggest sins — childhood sexual abuse.
I also want to thank the Daily Egyptian, the Southern Illinois University student newspaper, for writing a story about my book reading/discussion at the Longbranch Coffeehouse. The story can be found in the Daily Egyptian newspaper.
