With a message about confronting one’s past and facing one’s fears, the author will discuss her compelling memoir and share life anecdotes. Walls’ story of triumph – chronicled in her book that spent more than six years on The New York Times bestseller list, selling 4.5 million copies – makes audiences resonate with a positive attitude toward the “demons” in their own lives and a belief that anything is possible.
“Moving because it’s unsentimental… Walls’ journalistic bare-bones style makes for a chilling, wrenching, incredible testimony of childhood neglect. A pull-yourself-up-by-the- bootstraps, thoroughly American story.”
