Everyone has a story, not every story, however, is told. Family stories, sometimes handed down through generations, sometimes buried with those who lived them. Today’s story is about a woman learning a horrifying family truth and a plea to tell the world. I met Laurin M. Haupt by chance (or providence), who told a compelling story of her grandfather, held as a political prisoner in Dachau. She knew nothing about it until a train ride. After she shared the abbreviated version, I invited Laurin on the show today to talk about HER journey in writing the book of her family’s story. This is a different kind of 15 with the Author as there is no completed book. Laurin sent me a first draft. “The Red Badge” is now in editing. Laurin talks about hearing the story, the process of sharing it and what it means for her. I am hopeful that this encourages others who have a story, real or imagined, to move forward and write it. To get in touch with Laurin email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
