DuBose said that 60 percent of 911 calls relate to domestic violence.

“This is a very real plague that affects millions of American women each year,” she said. “When I discovered this, I was confident that literature could be used as a powerful weapon against predators. ‘Uncharted Waters’ tells the heroic tale of one young woman’s struggle against advancements by her own predator.”

DuBose is from Montgomery and this will be the second time that she has been the featured guest speaker at the Tupper Lightfoot Memorial Library.

“Sara DuBose is a delightful person and a wonderful and inspiring speaker,” said Jean Carroll, head librarian.

“We are excited to have her back at the library and encourage everyone to come and share this time with us.”

DuBose is the author of “Where Hearts Live,” “Where Love Grows,” “Where Memories Linger” and “A Promise for Tomorrow.” She is also the author of a non-fiction titled “Conquering Anxiety.”

“Sara DuBose writes articles and stories for numerous publications including seven anthologies,” Carroll said.

“She travels as a speaker for storytelling events, festivals, civic clubs, schools, churches and, of course, libraries.”
