Original books from PW
The Philadelphia Weekly isn't just a newspaper publisher anymore—it's a book publisher, too! In November 2012, we launched the first of our new line of original ebooks, bringing you world-class nonfiction spanning the stories of Philadelphia and America. Below, you'll find links to purchase our titles as they become available from Amazon, iBooks, and other familiar ebook stores.
When PW editor Nina Hoffmann said "I do" to her husband Joel in 2010, she knew that he'd been sexually abused as a child. What she didn't yet understand was that the hidden emotional wounds from that long-ago violation would soon come to permeate every aspect of their relationship, threatening their very ability to live and love together. The couple's two-year battle to save their marriage culminated in Joel's public coming-out as a sexual abuse survivor—and telling his story inspired them to begin collecting the personal stories of other survivors and their loved ones from around the nation. The Survivors Project presents more than 50 intimate, first-person essays from women and men of all ages and all backgrounds, having little in common except for the life-altering fact of the terrible thing that happened to them—and their determination to move forward by sharing their stories with the world.
