Tahtahme Xero will talk about her book Apricity (Nomadic Press, 2020), and discuss her work as a healer, poet and author.
Apricity follows the journey of a teenage transracial adoptee as she navigates addressing years of sexual abuse from her adoptive father, her family’s recovery and falling in love for the first time.
Xero says this of Apricity, “I hope the book I needed is a book found by people who need it as well. I hope you will pass it on to whoever else needs it. I hope it inspires you even just a little and in this way we can try to support each other, heal, teach the true tragedy of childhood sexual abuse and help stop it from continuing.”
Tahtahme Xero is a Sacred Woman, Womb Worker and Rootworker. She and her husband have been together for over 13 years, and have twin toddlers together. They all live in the Bay Area.
