About the Author:

LaVerne C. WIlliams, Editor of Rising to the Dawn: A Rape Survivor's Journey Into Healing, and herself a victim of rape, won a grant from the Puffin Foundation for her work on The Surviovr Project, from which this literary expression of the internal landscapes of women who have been sexually assaulted was borne.

Ms. Williams is a featured poet at several New York City locations, including The Langston Hughes Community Public Library, WBAI-FM, The Knitting Factory, and The Nuyorican Poets Cafe.

Review:

"Beneath the brutality that these words describe,shines the soul and strength of poets who are not only survivors, but through their creative expression have flourished. Anyone who has been a victim of rape will find solace in these words that articulate the inexpressible. Those who have been untouched by sex crimes will find new understanding." -- Elizabeth Garzarelli, M.A., Psychologist

"Rising to the Dawn: A Rape Survivor's Journey Into Healing" edited by LaVerne C. Williams, presents profoundly moving accounts of the experiences of victims and survivors of rape. These are heroic women who refuse to be silent any longer. Their writings,while poignantly expressing the anguish and despair of their experiences, also offer life affirming messages of hope." -- Judy S., CWS, Counselor, Victims Information Bureau of Suffolk

"Rising to the Dawn: A Rape Survivor's Journey Into Healing" is a compelling, tragic and heart-wrenching anthology of overwhelming significance to all individuals, male and female, who have been abused mentally or physically. A testimony that they are not alone." -- Holly Roberts, D.O. Obstetrcian-GYN
