CHILD SEXUAL ASSAULT, ONE IDIOT FAMILY, AND ONE WOMAN WHO TOLD THE TALE
Kathy Picard was pleased when her step father started showing her some special attention – until that attention became twisted and threatening. She lived with a nightmare with no help from the family members she told, no relief from the burden of what was happening to her. Even when she grew up and got away, there was no relief to be had from the law, because the statute of limitations was up.
So she fought to change they law. Then she fought to get justice. And then she wrote a book about it.
Picard is the author of “Life with My Idiot Family: A True Story of Survival, Courage and Justice over Childhood Sexual Abuse,” and she tells her story with grace, humor, and a conviction that it all led to a good life today.
Join us as we talk with Kathy about the book, her life, the law and the way she turned a horrific experience into a story of strength, hope and happiness.
