Against Such Things virtual event with Rachel K. Baldwin

Join us at as we welcome local Shelton author Rachel K. Baldwin for a reading and discussion of her first memoir, Against Such Things.

If you are born into ineffable darkness, could you even comprehend the light? Take one-part volatile home life, two-parts haphazard nomadic existence, zero-parts social connection, and shake well. Our protagonist's only constant is unpredictability: that, and the charismatic, fundamentalist hammerings from the pulpit. But when a sheltered child goes nuclear? Just pray you are FAR from the exclusion zone. Can a toxic cocktail of compounded trauma, spiritual warfare, and an unfettered nosedive into addiction be overcome? Join Rachel K. Baldwin on her passage through the underworld as she searches for the means to reassemble her splintered psyche while wrestling "Against Such Things."

“The long and short of it is this: I'm a recovering black-out artist, stay-at-home-dog-mom, and serial overcomer, but you can just call me Rachel. Life's been crazy, intense, messy, ugly, surreal, and BEAUTIFUL.
In-between hunting for estate sales, compulsively redecorating my historic home, and hanging out with my favorite people (aka, my fam), I write. It's my bridge to serenity. The place where I am centered and whole.
I'm a second-chance enthusiast at heart and the most fallible of any human I've met.
Gratitude. That's where I abide, man. All the time. No matter what.
Against Such Things is my first book.”

The event will be at 3:00pm on January 7th at our good ol’ webchat link:
