Cut Me Loose: Sin and Salvation After My Ultra-Orthodox Girlhood by Leah Vincent

Join us for a compelling author talk by Leah Vincent. Vincent was born into the Yeshivish community, a fundamentalist sect of ultra-Orthodox Judaism. A teenage misstep - exchanging letters with a male friend, a violation of religious law -- led her parents to put her on a plane and cut all ties. Cast out in New York City, without a father or husband tethering her to the Orthodox community, Vincent was totally unprepared to navigate the freedoms and temptations of secular life. Fast-paced, mesmerizing, and brutally honest, Cut Me Loose tells the story of one woman's harrowing struggle to define herself as an individual.
