“Thirst” by Lisa Fierer Amazon Audible Release!
“On December 6, 1984, twelve-year-old Lisa Fierer is called out of class to the principal’s office and told that her mother has been killed and her father arrested for the crime. Over the next twenty years, Lisa battles through school, addiction, relationships, and various forms of self-destruction. Along the way she learns that loss, violence, and betrayal create a deep desire for something she calls the new ‘f-word’: forgiveness. Thirst is about the distance between the lives we are given and the lives we choose. It’s a story about survival, hope, yoga, self-discovery, and the tremendous support of compassionate communities. It touches the part of each of us that longs for the healing power of laughter, the transformative force of forgiveness, and the bravery required to learn to love again.”
Former SPAN client, volunteer, and staff member, Lisa Fierer has written an AMAZING memoir to be released this month on Amazon Audible! From witnessing domestic violence as a child, struggling with addiction, and enduring destructive relationships, Lisa comes to recognize her utmost desire is forgiveness. With the support of compassionate communities, yoga, and self-discovery, Lisa is able to share her story.
