    Event Description:
    Sponsored by Octopus Garden, Kelly Walk Hines will be holding an exhibition for her book, Memoirs of an Invisible Child, in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. “Memoirs of an Invisible Child” is a new Amazon best seller autobiography about Kelly Walk Hines, recounting her continued recovery from losing her mother from domestic violence and the continued abuse and witnessing of abuse from childhood onward. Despite everything, she found a light where most would only see darkness. She used her trauma and life experiences to create a book that brings firsthand advice to abuse victims, filled with love, understanding, and honest truth. She recently received a title of New Jersey Heartland Hero and has appeared on Intentional Beings with Moe Amar and It's Your Time South Jersey. The exhibition will be held Thursday to Sunday the month of October and will be located at the Village Gallery in the Village on High, next to Octopus Garden. The exhibit will be titled “Hope in the Darkness” and will open on October 4, 2018. It will feature a showcase of keepsakes mentioned in the book as well as a multimedia exhibit including artwork by Samantha Hines and photography by Jeffrey Hines Jr. Also featured will be a book signing and talk with the author of Memoirs of an Invisible Child, Kelly Walk Hines. Books will be available for purchase and signing, those with books may bring their copy to be signed. An advocate from SERV will also be present at different times during the event to give further insight into the importance of domestic, sexual, and child abuse awareness. Open to the General Public Thursdays and Fridays 12 pm to 5 pm, Saturdays 12 pm to 6 pm, and Sundays 12 pm to 4 pm Available for groups and private viewings by appointment.
