Alice Tallmage Publishes “Now I Can See the Moon”

Alice Tallmadge, Willamette Writers member in Springfield, OR, announces the publication of her memoir, “Now I Can See the Moon—A Story of a Social Panic, False Memories, and a Life Cut Short.” The book combines personal narrative with an examination of the social panic over child sex abuse that swept the country in the 1980s through the mid-1990s. Kirkus Reviews wrote: “This book, visceral and urgently depicted, creates an intensive portrait of a family in the throes of misfortune and desperation….The author’s crisis of conscience…forms the memoir’s core as the powerful book also astutely addresses the issues of social panic and mental illness….potent and compassionate.” For more information, go here.
