Camden — The Camden Public Library welcomes back Patrisha McLean, Thursday, Oct. 29, at 6 p.m., for an online conversation with local survivors who are featured on the Finding Our Voices "Let's Talk About It" downtown window banners, bookmarks, and WERU-FM radio program. The program will be held on the Zoom meeting platform. Email to request a link to attend.

This program comes a year and a half after McLean first launched Finding Our Voices in the Camden Public Library as an exhibit of portraits and audio of survivors of domestic abuse. McLean will give an overview of what has changed with Finding Our Voices as an organization. Finding Our Voices Survivors Christine Buckley, Sarah McLean, Mia Montello and Jess Bowen will discuss what has changed in their lives since breaking their silence. The group will also cover what needs changing at the local, county, and state level in regards to domestic violence.

McLean, a photojournalist and human rights advocate, is the founder and president of Finding Our Voices. McLean is also the author of the books “Maine Street: Stories and Faces of a Small Town,” “Island Children” and “All Fall Down,” the biography of the child actor, Brandon deWilde, famous for his role in the movie, "Shane."
