AUTHOR BIO

Readers Love Say the Wrong Thing!

“I finished reading your book and loved it so much. Thank you for putting this beautiful writing into the world, for sharing your truth and your vulnerability and your courage.” —Danni Green

“I am so grateful for your mindful and soulful presence as you invite people to engage in crucial conversations across the color line.” —Tony Hernandez, educator

“Thank you for these vulnerable, powerful posts . . . I’m moved by your level of honesty. It makes me think a lot about how intertwined the individual and collective journey of brokenness and healing are.” —Frances Miller

“I love that you are putting these stories out in a book! I think they are wonderfully instructive and written in a way that makes them easy for the reader to take in. In fact, writing this endorsement has made me wonder if meetings might use it to foster conversation.” —Eileen Flanagan, author of Renewable: One Woman’s Search for Simplicity, Faithfulness and Hope

"It feels like we are all working so hard to 'get it right' that we are leaving the spontaneous, creative, unreliable parts of ourselves locked carefully in a closet where they can't make any embarrassing messes or cause misunderstandings, and that results in a brittle sort of social justice, which is better than nothing, but I'd like to learn how to reach--and help make space for others to ​reach--a more resilient kind of inclusive community. Without providing any magic answers, this is what the book is about.-Chel Avery
