"A Girl Like Her" Film and Discussion
Sunday, April 27 › 2-3:30 p.m.
Columbia Public Library, Friends Room
This documentary written and directed by Ann Fessler (author of "The Girls Who Went Away") combines footage from educational films and newsreels to trace the history of what happened to over a million young women who surrendered their children in the '50s and '60s, and kept it secret. The film will be followed by a panel discussion including an adoptive parent, an adoptee, birth parents involved with an open and closed adoption and a social worker. Co-sponsored by the Adoption Triad Connection of Mid-Missouri.
