Catholic Boy Blues: A Poet’s Journal of Healing

Norbert Krapf, Indiana Poet Laureate 2008 to 2010, kept a secret for half a century: as a boy in Jasper, he was molested by his parish priest.  Seven years ago Krapf began writing poems about his abuse and the result is Catholic Boy Blues.  Tonight’s event will include a reading from poems in the book in four voices (the boy, the man, the priest, and Mr. Blues, an advisor and healer), question and answer, and a book signing.   Lynn Pittman, LCSW and Child Abuse Prevention Coordinator, Raina Jones from Family Service, Inc. will be present as local resources.  Viewpoint Books will have copies of Catholic Boy Blues for sale. Krapf recently received the Indiana Authors Award as the best Regional Author. Sponsored by the Bartholomew County Library Associates.
