Shrewsbury: Library hosts Abbey's House founder

November 13, 2012

Ten years ago, Rafferty wrote a history of the first 25 years of Abby's House. Now she's written a new memoir, detailing the past decade: “Still Wearing Smooth the Path: 10 More Years at Abby's House.” Join in to salute this untiring woman for the work she has done to shelter women and children victims of domestic abuse.
