Join us for a Writing Ourselves Whole Book Launch Party!
Writing Ourselves Whole is a book about power and possibility, hope and transformation, and expertly weaves anecdotes from Jen’s own journey of self-exploration and recovery through writing with rich guidance and encouragement garnered from her fifteen-year career leading writing groups in the SF Bay area and around the country.  She has experienced and witnessed first-hand the power of writing – alone and in creative community – to manifest transformative change in the lives of those who embrace its possibilities.
At a time of daily challenging conversation about sexual violence in our society, join Jen and the Writing Ourselves Whole community to celebrate the release of her book, Writing Ourselves Whole: Using the Power of Your Own Creativity to Recover and Heal from Sexual Trauma (Mango, 2017). The evening will include a reading, Q&A with a special guest, and book signing. We will have books for sale on site. And there will be light refreshments and drinks, of course! 
In her book, Jen brings a message of hope and possibility about the power of creativity and writing in community as a path to transformative healing and personal liberation. Writing Ourselves Whole is full of support and advice for anyone who wants to tap into their creativity as a means to grow and heal.
