Inspire & Empower: A Young Girl Who Finally Found Her Voice - Casandra Austin, Local Springfield Author



“I had two houses I had to keep secrets in, and only one vessel in which held them all – my mind, heart and soul” excerpt from Casandra Austin’s book Unclothed: Memoir of a Naked Soul

Have you ever felt like you were putting on a mask when you went to work? Around your friends? In the community? Or even around your own family? Have you worn a mask for so long that you've lost touch with who you truly are? After mentoring and counseling youth who had been detained in the juvenile detention center, Casandra Austin realized she needed some mentoring and counseling herself. She realized she was wearing a mask to cover up and hide what was on the inside. She bared her soul in her book Unclothed: Memoir of a Naked Soul. Join us on January 18th as local author, Casandra Austin will inspire and empower all of us as she shares her story from being broken, suicidal and lost to a healed published author.  

Casandra will have copies of her book for sale at the luncheon.  Copies are $16.00. However, if you want to read the book before the luncheon, they are available online at barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com
