The Progressive Page Turner: A book about secrets

Written by on Tuesday, December 26, 2023

All families have secrets and even when we don’t know what they are, they shape us and our view of the world. My guest on Monday, Jan 1, 2024 is Karen E. Osborne. She’s written a novel based on her family’s secrets.

Osborne’s grandmother, Grace, was born in the Congo, immigrated to Jamaica and was married off to an older man when she was just 13 years old. When she discovers her husband raping their 13 year old daughter she must face the openly racist and misogynist justice system.

Join us on Jan. 1 at 9am for a discussion of this gripping story.
