Philadelphia poet, essayist and writer Dolores Miller will read from her two collections, Beautiful Warrior and Rising Above the Beauty of Life.
Dolores is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. While she was blessed to be rescued from that situation and adopted by a loving family, she had repressed memories and long-lasting psychological effects from her trauma. Her writing tells the story of how she processed the memories that only came back to her in her thirties and how she came to be in a better place in life.
