In this deeply personal and thoroughly researched account, Foo interviews scientists and psychologists and tries a variety of innovative therapies. She returns to her hometown of San Jose, California, to investigate the effects of immigrant trauma on the community, and she uncovers family secrets in the country of her birth, Malaysia, to learn how trauma can be inherited through generations. Ultimately, she discovers that you don’t move on from trauma - but you can learn to move with it.
After the discussion, you can also attend The BIG Read Presents Stephanie Foo on April 27 at 10 a.m. at Owen Community College's Toledo Campus CFPA Theatre.
