Meeting in the Margins: An Invitation to Encounter Society's Invisible People

For 20 years, Cynthia Trenshaw's workplaces have been one city's infamous slums, another city's hospital corridors, and countless nursing homes, hospices, and county courtrooms. Her mission: to reach out and touch the invisible individuals on the margins of society—from the poor, the homeless, and the mentally ill to the incarcerated, the incapacitated, the elderly, and the dying. In Meeting in the Margins, she shares stories of her encounters and the people she got to know through them, making each individual undeniably real, and challenging readers to step outside of their comfort zones and reach out to the marginalized individuals in their community. Trenshaw will share her story and her challenge with us at this reading and signing of Meeting in the Margins.

Cynthia TrenshawCynthia Trenshaw earned national certification as hospital chaplain and as massage therapist. She holds WA state certifications as professional guardian, guardian ad litem, and nursing assistant-registered. She holds a masters degree in theology (MTh) from Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley. Three of the chapters from Meeting in the Margins have been published in an anthology and a literary journal, and her essays and poetry have been published in a variety of magazines and journals over the past ten years.
