Writing Your Truth: A Virtual Conversation with Rachael Brooks & Zachary Horner Thursday, August 27th from 7-8:30pm Eastern Time via Zoom. For Adults and Teens.
About Rachael Brooks: Rachael Brooks is a writer and public speaker in the sexual violence prevention and mental wellness sectors, located in Raleigh, NC. She currently speaks with and serves on the board of InterAct of Wake County, a North Carolina area nonprofit focusing on giving sexual assault survivors a voice. Rachael is the author of Beads (Koehler Books), a memoir detailing her journey from sexual assault victim to survivor. Beads speaks to the challenges that sexual assault victims face and the range of emotions they experience throughout the recovery process. Her story takes place immediately following her graduation from UNC-Chapel Hill and describes the many injustices she experienced within the justice system, which are still very pertinent today.

About Zachary Horner: Zachary is a native of Sanford, N.C., and while he is now passionate about bringing healing to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, it wasn’t always this way.

Three years later, he is the Chair of the Board of Directors of HAVEN in Lee County, Sanford’s nonprofit serving survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. He currently works full-time as the Communications Specialist for the Chatham County Public Health Department.
