Being at Home in the World Author Laetitia Mizero Hellerud To Visit Main Library January 14

Having to adapt to this way of thinking since childhood, she learned to rely on her own decisions and, at the same time, accept the love and help of others to survive. In Being at Home in the World, Laetitia shares what she has learned about adaptation and finding your home in the midst of chaos and struggle. Books will be available for purchase.
