Anniversary Celebration & Book Event
Takoma | Nicolás Guillén Room | October 29, 2017 | 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

L.Y. Marlowis an award-winning author and empowerment speaker whose life journey took her from a legacy of domestic violence to the opulence of corporate America; and now to a life devoted to empowering others. Her story would be notable enough given her tenacity to shatter the status quo, but it would be her courageous decision to step down from a highly coveted and stellar 20+ year corporate career to write her award-winning Color Me Butterfly—the compelling and heart wrenching story behind the national organization she founded Saving Promise—inspired by five generations of mothers and daughters in her family that survived more than sixty years of domestic violence, including her granddaughter, a little girl named Promise.

This heartfelt and captivating story of tragedy to triumph, moved L.Y. to share her journey in an engaging and compelling memoir entitled ‘Don’t Look at the Monster: One Woman’s Journey to Embrace a Purposeful Life—the Gifts, the Lessons and the Blessings’.

L.Y.’s authentic voice as a survivor, mother and friend—an ordinary woman with an extraordinary story—is a testament to the transformative power of discovering one’s passion, purpose and power.

Join L.Y. as she celebrates Saving Promise 10th Anniversary and share
her compelling and empowering story!
