Author Talk Session & Book Signing with Anita D Russell

Author Talk Session and Book Signing with Anita D Russell, Pittsburgh Author and Change Cultivator

Join Anita D Russell, author of I Wanna See Laney’s House, as she shares her journey from a dark night of the soul induced by childhood trauma, teen depression and suicidal thoughts to spiritual development and mental wellness.

Every person’s story is a microcosmic enactment of God’s eternal story, a portrayal of His relationship with humanity. Written with a cathartic tone, this sibling story reveals an arduous testimony over the course of a lifetime. It is a testimony of developing faith and struggle for identity, personal acceptance, and self-liberation.

Amazon 5 Star Review. “I met the author several months ago and wanted to support her writing effort; besides I wanted to know what the title referred to. Anita’s writing style drew me in and made me feel like I was experiencing the events of her childhood along with her. I found it difficult to put the book down. Her chapter titles, often references to the Bible, were spot on. I wish I had the ability to remember even half as many events from my youth as she does from hers. I recommend this book to anyone searching for meaning in their life or who just wants to read a biography about someone growing up in the Pittsburgh area.”
