CANCELLED Best-selling author Rene Denfeld to speak at Stayton Public Library
12/13/2018

Unfortunately, due to an emergency with our guest, our event tonight with author Rene Denfeld will be cancelled. We will be working with her to reschedule. 

 

The Stayton Public Library is excited to announce an author visit with best-selling Oregon author Rene Denfeld on Thursday, December 13, 2018 at 7:00 pm in the E. G. Siegmund Meeting Room. There will be a reception accompanying the event.

Rene is the author of the acclaimed novels The Child Finder and The Enchanted, as well as essays in publications such as the New York Times. Rene’s literary thriller, The Child Finder, explores themes of survival, resiliency and redemption.

Rene’s lyrical, beautiful writing is inspired by her work with sex trafficking victims and innocents in prison. Rene was the Chief Investigator at a public defender’s office and has worked hundreds of cases. In addition to her advocacy work, Rene has been a foster adoptive parent for twenty years. She was awarded the Break The Silence Award in Washington, DC in 2017 for her social justice work, and was named one of the heroic stories of the year by the New York Times. 

The child of a difficult history herself, Rene is an accomplished speaker who loves connecting with others. Rene lives in Portland, Oregon, where she is the happy mom of three kids adopted from foster care as well as other foster kids.

The Stayton Public Library’s speaking events for 2018 are sponsored by the Stayton Friends of the Library.
