When you discover your father has a secret with Laurie Sandell

In this week’s episode of Shared Secrets, Laurie Sandell discusses the time she learned one heck of a family secret—and opted to share it with the world. Her book, The Impostor’s Daughter: A True Memoir, details the jaw-dropping lies her father told her family. A bonus: The book is illustrated with her own cartoons. 

In the podcast, I’ll ask Laurie how she unearthed the secrets she wasn’t sure she wanted to learn, and how she found the courage to tell the story. We’ll also chat about the ways in which all families harbor secrets and shame, and how telling the truth can set families free.
