 “STAYING”

JESSIE COLE

As children, Jessie Cole and her brother ran wild in an idyllic rainforest home. They had adoring parents and two beautiful half-sisters, who visited every holiday. But when Jessie was on the cusp of adolescence, tragedy struck, and her loving family fell apart. Join Jessie in conversation about Staying, her powerful memoir about family and forgiveness and finding peace in a place of pain.
