I’m So Glad I Didn’t Die

Anita Grant is a featured human book at our upcoming Human Library event on May 31st. Her life's human book title is "I'm So Glad I Didn't Die" and she'll recount her journey from poverty, incest and a teenage pregnancy in Harlem, New York to becoming a woman in her 70's who is now a minister and counselor to help others. Her story is a ride through those early challenges eclipsing the train wreck that could have derailed her from becoming the happy, loving, spiritual person that she is today. She went from the other side of anger to a woman who loves life. Her favorite quote is from Carl Jung that says, "I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become."

Mark your calendar: Saturday, May 31st from 1-4pm at the Long Beach Main Public Library, 101 Pacific Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90802.
