Carolyn Jessop Print
Date: Tuesday, June 08 2010, 7:15 pm—9:00 pm
Location: Decatur
Event Type: Author Talks
Series: Georgia Center for the Book's Festival of Writers
Age Group: Adult (18+)

Two years ago we presented the young author of the best-selling true story Escape, who vividly recounted her dangerous, courageous and successful escape with her eight children from a forced polygamous Mormon marriage. Now Carolyn Jessop returns with a new book written with Laura Palmer, Triumph: Life After the Cult: A Survivor’s Lesson. In this book, she talks about her life in recent years and what she has learned since re-joining a non-fundamentalist society. Jessop’s voice is a distinctive one as she relates her growth as a woman re-gaining her self-confidence in spite of the heart-wrenching events that have befallen her.
