About The Event

Exhibiting Home Truths artist Ann Fessler, who has created multiple works connected to her experience as an adoptee, will screen her film and respond to questions from the audience. A Girl Like Her  reveals the hidden history of over a million young American women who became pregnant in the 1950s and 60s and were banished to maternity homes to give birth, surrender their children, and return home alone.
