Join us for a signing with author and retired jockey Karen Rogers.

Karen Rogers, a professional leading jockey at the New York tracks and one of the first successful female jockeys, writes her personal journey to overcome the negative results of childhood sexual and emotional abuse by becoming an accomplished athlete. She tells firsthand how it drove her to the top of the thoroughbred racing industry at the age of sixteen, but also brought her to the depths of despair as she suffered from eating disorders, alcohol abuse, a toxic marriage, and suicide attempts. In the end, she discovers the truth about her past and finds peace and healing. The author has been on Late Night with David Letterman, The Donahue Show, Howard Cosell's SportsBeat, ABC's Good Morning America, NBC's Today Show with Jane Pauley, CBS's Thirty Minutes, ABC's Superstars, and other television programs. Featured in US magazine, People magazine, Family Circle, Teen magazine, and many other popular publications, she has also been published in the New York Times.
