It began as a memory of a memory: our guest today, author Amos Kamil’s recollection of a terrible story of sexual abuse and victimization told him by a school mate on a camping trip years after they had both graduated from the famous NY Prep School Horace Mann.
The memory became a mission, Kamil says, when he was confronted by news coverage of the sex abuse scandal at Penn State University in 2011.
Could there have been a similar situation at Horace Mann? Were there many more victims that his friend? were there years of abuses were they enabled by the school’s leaders? Answering those questions became Amos Kamil’s mission.
