Healing After Losing a Parent: Author Talk with Torrey Rush

Losing a parent is devastating, whether you are 7 years old or 70.

When Richland County Councilman Torrey Rush lost his father in 1999, he tried to suppress his grief and emotions until he realized how that could affect his own children. His book, Tears of a Lonely Son: My Journey to Emotional Healing, chronicles his quest to restore his emotional health not only for himself, but to give his children the strong foundation they need to get through life.

Join us for this author talk on Wednesday, November 13th at 6:30 p.m. in the Bostick Auditorium at Richland Library Main.
