City Lights

Join City Lights as Jean Hargadon Wehner presents her memoir “Walking with Aletheia” at 3 p.m. Saturday.

“Walking with Aletheia” relates the author’s experiences of sexual abuse by, at first, a great-uncle, then by a network of priests and others who worked at her Catholic high school in Baltimore, Maryland. “Walking with Aletheia” is also about hope and survival.

Wehner, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, is an advocate for sexual abuse survivors, their families, and the people who work with them. She has experience working, educating and communicating with diverse populations, including faith groups, student groups and professional associations.

She is also a contributor to the Emmy-nominated Netflix documentary series “The Keepers.” In addition to her advocacy work, Wehner originally trained as a spiritual director, is now a nationally certified reflexologist, certified life coach and reiki practitioner.
