Come hear pattrice jones read from her important new book, Aftershock: Confronting Trauma in a Violent World. A Guide for Activists and Their Allies (Lantern Books), this Friday at Bluestockings Feminist Bookstore.

She’s also a psychotherapist who has worked with sexual and domestic violence survivors, a college professor, and co-founder of the Eastern Shore Chicken Sanctuary in Maryland. In Aftershock, jones draws from her experiences in these roles to help us recognize, acknowledge, and recover from the trauma this violent world deals us. The book was inspired by jones’ article “Fear of Feeling: Trauma and Recovery in the Animal Rights Movement.” (Satya, 2005).
