Join KFPL and author Denise Davy for a discussion about her book Her Name Was Margaret - Life and Death on the Streets.

Award-winning journalist Denise Davy has written many powerful investigative stories during her career, but few have been as memorable as the one she wrote about Margaret Jacobson, a woman who lived much of her life on the streets.

When Jacobson was in her teens, she experienced significant mental health issues and encountered numerous systemic barriers as a result. Davy tells Margaret's story in her new book Her Name Was Margaret - Life and Death on the Streets, a compelling look at one woman’s journey through the psychiatric care system and how it failed her and thousands of others.
