As you may know there are not a lot of books out there by male survivors of child sex abuse, and even less by gay male survivors. I wanted to let people know I just recently added one to the list. My book, Empty Playground: A Survivor's Story, was released on November 12.

If you're in the Madison, Wisconsin area there will be a book release event next Sunday, November 29, from 2-4 p.m. Free of charge. Copies of the book will be available at a reduced rate and some of the proceeds of the event will be donated to Paths to Healing, an annual conference on surviving child sex abuse with an emphasis on male survivors. Refreshments will be provided and I'll be reading from the book and signing afterwards. It will be at the Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center, 953 Jenifer Street in Madison.
