Part III: America & Beyond: One Woman’s Journey
Local author and model Valerie Owens of Lower Salford will discuss her life, her reintroduction into the world of modeling at age 57 and the value of age in a world focused on youth and speed. In 2009 Owens also wrote a book called “America Huh! I’m Going Home,” which retells a nightmarish sequence of events that almost cut her life short. While a graduate student at Temple University, Valerie had traveled to Nigeria with a friend to do scholarly research. Her plans were drastically interrupted when she was kidnapped and nearly sold into slavery. Owens has been featured in the Norristown Times Herald, Perkasie News Herald & the Daily Local.
