an unthinkable journey from gutless to grateful

By Amy Oestreicher

Thursday, July 11, 2019
Barnes & Noble
1076 Post Road East, Westport
6:30 pm

My Beautiful Detour leads readers through Amy’s unthinkable journey—including coming to terms with the long-stifled secret of her sexual abuse by a trusted mentor—and shares her hard-won insight on the restorative power of creativity to forge a roadmap where none existed.

Amy’s journey as a survivor—and ‘thriver’—of abuse and extensive medical trauma is ultimately a celebration of ordinary and extraordinary challenges and miracles. She encourages others to find their beautiful detour, and empowers us to find gratitude in every setback and discover our own infinite inner strength.

“Amy’s extraordinary life and work reveal the power of art to transform. Her survival journey, unveiled in My Beautiful Detour, is more than inspiring; it is a celebration. Against all odds, Amy finds—and creates—the magical out of the impossible.”

— Amanda Gronich, co-creator, The Laramie Project

“Thank you, Amy, for this book and teaching us all that when we live in and from gratitude for EVERYTHING life hands us, ANYTHING is possible.”

—David Friedman, Broadway Composer, author of The Thought Exchange

Help Amy celebrate the release of her inspiring memoir with a community-wide event.
There will be a brief author interview/Q & A, followed by an excerpt reading and book signing.
There will also be refreshments and a literary door prize gift basket. All are welcome.
