Many thanks to Michael Gurney, Coast Reporter arts and culture writer, for introducing me at the April 15 launch of my memoir No Letter in Your Pocket. He provided insightful Q&A questions and I appreciated his understanding and sensitivity. About 50 people attended the event, held at Sunshine Coast Arts Centre in Sechelt, expressing gratitude and praise for the presentation and its recognition of trauma survivors. We addressed forgiveness, the impact of trauma, and other issues. Click here to read Michael’s review of my memoir in the Coast Reporter.
