Regina Louise & Someone Has Led This Child to Believe at Vroman’s Bookstore
Author Regina Louise joins us to present, discuss and sign her new book, Someone Has Led This Child to Believe: A Memoir. This is the story on what happens after the events outlined in Somebody’s Someone, and covers her beleaguered adolescent years and her eventual departure for the system as she aged out and tired, against all odds, to pursue her dream of a college education. The story of her adult life culminates with her being reunited with the woman closet to her during her fragmented childhood—and whose long effort to adopt Louise finally came to fruition.
