My Ugly Truth: Reading & Signing with Jillian Coburn

Jillian Coburn’s new memoir, My Ugly Truth: Life Beyond Abuse, is a bracing one: When Coburn was 18 and unexpectedly got pregnant, her life changed. With little support from the baby’s father, and a pill habit to feed, Coburn soon found herself in a cycle of addiction, psychological, and physical abuse.

In the years following, Coburn went from one bad relationship to the next. Eventually, she found her saving grace in her faith, her husband Lonnie and her children, and her determination to stay clean.
