Notes On A Silencing

A Memoir. By Lacy Crawford.

Crawford’s harrowing years at the prestigious St. Paul’s School in Corcord, NH read like a novel. Her chilling and compelling story reveal a complicated legacy of so many women and men alike. All or parts of Crawford’s encounters are relatable to young students, whether in elite prep schools or not. And the dismissal and cover-up of abuse and assault are common to all of them.

Crawford’s book was elicited by recent investigations into the school. None of the voluminous allegations ended in any criminal charges. However, Crawford’s husband encouraged her to publish this memoir to finally “burn it all down”.

Whatever you conclude from Crawford’s retelling of her life, it is a remarkable and well-written read.
