Bainbridge-based author and educator Becky Allender will visit Eagle Harbor Books and talk about her new book “Hidden in Plain Sight: One Woman’s Search for Identity, Intimacy and Calling” at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 4.

Allender is co-founder, alongside her husband Dan, of the Allender Center at The Seattle School of Psychology and Theology in downtown Seattle. She is also facilitator of the many story workshops the school puts on for those still dealing with trauma and sexual abuse in their formative years.

She said the basis for this book was her own experience, often feeling “hidden in plain sight” behind her more vocal husband, and feeling swept aside and lost in his frenzied world and words.

This memoir is about her journey, becoming visible through the power of remembering stories and embracing them with kindness. By offering care and intrigue to her experience, it enabled her to gain new freedom to open her life and highlight the good, the bad and the memorable.

Allender invites readers to ponder their stories and to prize the way God quietly reveals himself in the mundane and the magnificent parts of our story. She and her husband live on Bainbridge Island.
