Reading & Talk: Being Mean by Patricia Eagle

Patricia Eagle was thirteen when the sexual relationship with her father––a relationship that began when she was four years old––ended. As a young woman she dreamed of love, but shame, depression, and the confusion of suppressed memories sent her careening through life, wondering how to trust others and herself. In Being Mean––A Memoir of Sexual Abuse and Survival (June 2019, She Writes Press), Eagle shares her journey with courage and hope as she finds strength to see what was unseeable––and finally speaks the unspeakable to help herself and others.
