Surviving Rape

Posted Monday, May 5, 2008

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

Few crimes are more traumatic than rape. The scars run deep and victims rarely want to talk about it publicly. So, when one does, it commands our attention. Reporter Joanna Connors was sexually assaulted on a Cleveland college campus 23 years ago. It haunted her until she began to retrace the life of the rapist and face the inner conflicts the assault produced in her own life. Read about it in Sunday's Plain Dealer and then join the conversation with the author this morning at 9:00.
