Local author Hilary Crowley publishes book on her work in India

Hilary Crowley, a Prince George physiotherapist, has volunteered her time in India over the last 25 years helping to develop a community based disability program and provide training for the team.

She has now published a book about these experiences, titled FOOTSTEPS TO FREEDOM, Tales of Therapy in Rural India. She will launch her book at Art Space on May 29 at 7 p.m. She will show slides of her work in India with some short readings followed by light refreshments. She will be happy to sign books during the evening.

One reader’s comment states: “Poetic, honest and straight from the heart.”

Footsteps to Freedom transports the reader into rural India during the height of the polio epidemic. This journey describes how children with polio progress from crawling in their village through rehabilitation and education to become adults leading productive lives. See life through the eyes of these children and follow their footsteps through these pages as you travel from Canada to rural India with interludes in England.

Hilary has founded a charity, Samuha Overseas Development Association (SODA), in Prince George to support Samuha’s work in India. All profits from sales of this book will go to support Samuha’s disability program in India.
