“After touring The Center for Prevention of Abuse, I couldn’t help but think of those who’d walked the halls before me. The fact that such a facility needs to exist is chilling. Hence why, myself and three other fantastic volunteers strive to make Writers On the River a premier event in Central Illinois,” said Jillian Jacobs, Healing With Words. “Last year, Writers On the River raised $1,500 for Thistle Farms. This year we will allocate proceeds to both charities. As authors, we create books that allow an escape, so matching with a company that does the same for women, children, and men, though in a different ways, was an easy decision.”
Writers On The River, an author signing and book sale, will feature 80+ romance authors at the Par-A-Dice Hotel, 21 Blackjack Blvd in East Peoria on Saturday, July 8th, 2017. New York Times and USA Today best sellers will be in attendance. This event is hosted by Healing With Words. General admission entry will begin at 1pm. Event ends at 4pm. Tickets are available on the website and will be available for sale on day of event.
Healing With Words is a not for profit established for healing survivors of abuse, addiction, trafficking, and prostitution. We feel the best way to spread love is to share the love of reading.
Through the written word, persons can find an escape and a form of entertainment.
Our mission is to bring together readers, authors, and survivors in a positive manner that affects change and relief from negative influences.
