Pure Land and the Healing Power of Nature Book Talk

Join author Annette McGivney as she shares how a story assignment for Backpacker magazine changed her life and grew into the recent book Pure Land: A True Story of Three Lives, Three Cultures, and the Search for Heaven on Earth. McGivney will talk about her experiences and research around the connections between family violence and trauma -- and how a relationship to wild places can heal these wounds. October is national Domestic Violence Awareness Month and this presentation is intended to foster discussion about how violence against women not only impacts individuals and families but entire communities, as demonstrated in Pure Land.
