'Singing with the Sirens' Book Discussion Series with Author Ellyn Bell, begins October 11th!
Florey's Book Co. invites you to a multi-week discussion group based on 'Singing with the Sirens', with author Ellyn Bell.
***Sunday, October 11th, 2-4pm***
Numerous women and men have suffered sexual abuse, exploitation or other sexual traumas as children. As a result, many people struggle with various issues around self worth, power and value in adulthood.
Singing with the Sirens addresses the long term effects of child sexual exploitation on women's lives, and how to embark upon a journey toward wholeness through healing and finding the lost voice of long ago.
Come to a group discussion with the authors of this book as we read and discuss chapter by chapter the content and the ability we all have to transform childhood pain and shame into grace and strength. This is a discussion group for anyone interested in the topic.
