The Wounds that Bind Us

Sep 11, 2023

5:30 p.m. - Perkins Stone Mansion under the tent, 550 Copley Road, Akron, OH

The Society welcomes home one of its own for a special book talk on 9-11. Kelley Shinn grew up in the Portage Lakes area where many perceived her as a typical teenager until a misdiagnosis caused her to lose both legs below the knee. The Wounds That Bind Us is her story where the truth comes out . . . her adoption . . . abuse . . . passion . . . unconditional love as a parent.

Kelley will share passages from her amazing work including a segment about September 11, 2001. You will be swept away by her candor and the adventures she takes in a Land Rover.

The event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase to be signed by the author.
