Author Event: Cameron Dezen Hammon
Page 158 Books welcomes Cameron Dezen Hammon in conversation about her memoir THIS IS MY BODY.
Author and musician Cameron Dezen Hammon’s memoir of faith and faltering weaves her zealous conversion to evangelicalism with the search for a more progressive and fluid theology, and the endurance of marriage with an unexpected obsession that threatens to upend her carefully constructed life. From speaking in tongues to street preaching, from biblically sanctioned discrimination to sexual assault, she invites readers inside this tender and harrowing quest for meaning. Part inspiring spiritual memoir, part incisive cultural critique, her story of finding and losing faith is ultimately one of rebuilding a truer, braver self.
“For evangelical Christians who, like the author, struggle to be both believers and feminists, Dezen Hammon’s story offers hope and validation. For those outside the church, the book is an edifying behind-the-scenes tour.” ―Robyn Ross, Texas Observer
