Many survivors of sexual abuse struggle for years to recover from the assault while combating stigma and silence. Few are aware of the tremendous strength and resolve it takes to heal from the long-lasting emotional scars left by such abuse. PW's first book, The Survivors Project: Telling the Truth About Life After Sexual Abuse, explores this complex issue in more than 50 personal essays written by survivors, their loved ones and advocates. The essays are raw, emotional, starkly honest and, most importantly, full of hope. PW senior editor Nina Hoffmann and her husband, project co-editor Joel Hoffmann—who know the healing process first-hand—will discuss the book and read excerpts at a Free Library event on Nov. 19 at 7:30 p.m. The event will also feature speakers from Women Organized Against Rape and the Philadelphia Childrens Alliance.

7:30pm. Free. The Central Branch of the Free Library, 1901 Vine St. 215.686.5322. freelibrary.org

How to Save Your Relationship And Marriage from Divorce or broke up

An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my husband back to me.. My name is Natasha Johnson,i live in Florida,USA,and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website { http://enchantedscents.tripod.com/lovespell/},if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to the Dr Brave for bringing back my husband ,and brought great joy to my family once again. {bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, Thanks..”
