Daleen shines a light on today's social issues with the eagle eye of an investigative journalist to help inform, educate and empower. Her memoir, Sister of Silence, tells how "the author found herself barefoot and pregnant—and the mother of four babies by age twenty-one. Follow along on Daleen’s personal journey from coal miner’s wife to teen mom to award-winning journalist, determined to break the silence that shatters women and children's lives. A riveting true story, this memoir demonstrates the astonishing resilience of the human spirit."
Daleen will be speaking at TEDx Connecticut College on April 13, 2013.
