On Friday, October, 2, Haven House will be sponsoring a 30th Anniversary luncheon at Verbena Restaurant in Williamsville, NY, including a keynote speech by Ms. Hedda Nussbaum. Ms. Nussbaum, battered and bruised after years of torture by her domestic partner, Joel Steinberg, was abruptly thrown into the public spotlight in November, 1987 after Steinberg assaulted and killed their daughter, Lisa. She went on to become an advocate for other battered women. She will be sharing her story and signing copies of her book “Surviving Intimate Terrorism.” The event will be held at Verbena Grille (930 Maple Rd. Williamsville, NY) starting at 11:30am.
