Rachel Louise Snyder to Share Journey from Teenage Runaway to Global Stage
Tuesday, February 21, 2023


Rachel Louise Snyder, who shared some of the findings about domestic violence in her New York Times bestseller “No Visible Bruises” last fall, will discuss her forthcoming memoir at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23, at Ketchum’s Community Library.

Her memoir, “Women We Buried, Women We Burned,” is an account of her journey from teenage runaway to someone reporting on the global epidemic of domestic violence around the world. It is scheduled to be released May 23, 2023, by Bloomsbury.

Snyder was 8 when her mother died and her distraught father took his family halfway across the country to an evangelical, cult-like existence. She rebelled and was expelled from school and home at age 16. Living out of her car she talked her way into college and eventually traveled the world interviewing those who had been through the unimaginable in places like Cambodia, India, Tibet and Niger.

Snyder is spending time in Ketchum as a Writer-in-Residence at the historic Ernest and Mary Hemingway House and Preserve’ where the library hosts writers year-round in the creative space that Hemingway loved and lived.

"We first brought Rachel to the valley last fall in collaboration with The Advocates,” said Martha Williams, director of programs and education for The Community Library. “Bringing Rachel back for an extended stay is really exciting. While here, she'll talk with our community about her upcoming memoir, a personal story that brings close to home many of the themes from No Visible Bruises… She'll also meet with local students to share her story and guide them into the importance of sharing their own, and she'll continue working with The Advocates—an organization whose work is so incredibly important in our community."
