Join us for an author talk with C.S. Hunt as she discusses her new memoir: Scars Among Us. 

Catherine is a dream come true for her parents. Their first born child is their most precious gift. The love and joy they feel for her is obvious to everyone who knows them. When tragedy unexpectedly hits, Catherine's world is turned upside down and the course of her life is forever changed.

Scars Among Us talks about what many victims are afraid to talk out loud about. There is a taboo of shame deeply woven into the emotions of many victims of rape. The travesty of sexual abuse impacts not only the victim but all who are involved, including their family, and the family of the perpetrators. This is a book about hope, speaking out and normalizing the pain, extinguishing the shame and stigma of sexual abuse once and for all.
