PRISONER OF HER PAST originated as a 10,000-word Chicago Tribune article in 2003 and immediately drew hundreds of emails from around the world. Tribune writer Howard Reich, whose mother's late-onset Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder was the subject of the piece, then expanded the article into a book, "The First and Final Nightmare of Sonia Reich" and PRISONER OF HER PAST -a collaboration with acclaimed documentary powerhouse Kartemquin Films.

Join Howard Reich, director Gordon Quinn, and Dr. Bradley Stolbach of La Rabida Children's Hospital for an exclusive, intimate luncheon and book signing at the majestic Union League Club of Chicago on Monday, April 11.

Tickets are disappearing fast for this one-time opportunity to lunch with the filmmakers and participate in an in-depth discussion of late-onset PTSD prior to the film's national broadcast on PBS later this month. Also in attendance, Kartemquin Films Executive Director Justine Nagan and the 45-year old organization's board of directors, including Board President Steven Whisnant.
