Meet Cranford Author Lockey Maisonneuve at The Town Book Store in Westfield, October 20, 1-3pm

A Girl Raised by Wolves: An Inspiring Memoir of One Woman’s Journey Through Sex Trafficking, Cancer, Murder, and More

The Town Book Store will be hosting a Meet & Greet for Cranford resident Lockey Maisonneuve author of A Girl Raised By Wolves: An Inspiring Memoir of One woman’s Journey Through Sex Trafficking, Cancer, Murder, and More on Saturday, October 20th  from 1:00-3:00 PM. 

In the late 1970's, in a gritty NJ town, an adolescent girl is unwittingly handed a one-way ticket by her mother to allegedly "visit" her estranged father in Florida. Young and vulnerable, Lockey Maisonneuve had no idea what was in store for her when she was sent to live with her vile and dangerous father.  During the next several years her father violently raped, abused and mercilessly sold his daughter's body repeatedly in childhood prostitution. Eventually rescued by her naive, but well-intentioned, grandparents, she begins to pull herself out of her troubled past only to eventually find herself fighting breast cancer and dealing with the brutal murder of her mother. A Girl Raised by Wolves is the inspirational memoir of a survivor of some of the darkest circumstances one can endure in a single lifetime.

Boxwood Coffee Owner Stephen Bellamy's Q&A with NJ Monthly

It's a happy accident, since the 4,000 square-foot space means not only an expansion of their business, but an expansion of the Boxwood concept itself, complete with in-house roasting, weekly cupping classes and an on-site Specialty Coffee Association training program. NJ Monthly caught up with Stephen Bellamy about what to expect from the new store at 143 E. Broad St. Read more...
