Based on her upcoming book, The Story Keeper, this talk is a moving, emotional discussion of what it means to be the keeper of other people's secret traumas. Kerry shares the tragic story of her friend, V's abuse at the hands of her family, her subsequent descent into crime and insanity, the take-down of a captain in an international drug ring, and V's eventual suicide. The story spans three continents, includes content from V's legal proceedings and discussions with the cop who arrested her, and Kerry expertly shares excerpts from letters, instant messages, and emails so V's voice is heard, too. This talk is a moving call to advocacy for childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence, and mental illness. It is ideal for both faith-based and secular organizations, and is especially great for those who bear witness to the trauma of others.
