Triumph

7:15 P.M., Decatur Library Auditorium

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 Survivoríís Lesson. In this book, she talks about her life in recent years and what she has learned since re-joining a non-fundamentalist society. Jessopís 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.
