The tale begins in Sept. 1993 as four generations of the Travis family have come together to celebrate the 80th birthday of their matriarch, Isabelle. One after another, family members gathered around the dinner table reflect on precious memories of the experiences they have all had at the cabin over the years.

Book Tour for "Faraway: A Suburban Boy's Story as a Victim of Sex Trafficking" is Now Underway

Faraway BN HarMar Mall small  April is National Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the perfect time to launch the new book, Faraway: A Suburban Boy's Story as a Victim of Sex Trafficking. The first four events of the 15-city book tour have already taken place. Up next is an appearance at the Barnes & Noble store in Rochester, Minn., on Sun., April 19 from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.

   Rev. Kevin Kline and his co-author, Dan Maurer, will lead a presentation, answer questions and sign books.  Kline, who was himself a victim of trafficking in his youth, is hoping to use the book as a springboard that will help a very underserved segment of the population of sex trafficking victims: boys.

   When Rev. Kline was 14-years-old in the summer of 1975, a friend from school who, like him was gay, hand delivered him to a pimp who coerced him into servicing men in St. Louis. For 3-months he had sex with men for money, afterwards, returning to his suburban home. His parents had no idea what was going on. 

   The trafficking went on all summer long. Kline says he eventually stopped returning his pimp's calls after two friends he made on the streets, fellow trafficking victims, both died. One was hit by a van. The other died of exposure. 

   Kline tried to put what happened behind him, and did a pretty good job of it for 30 years. Then one day he was mugged and all the terrible feelings about what had happened came flooding back.

   His psychologist encouraged him to journal about his feelings and that journal eventually turned into the book, Faraway: A Suburban Boy's Story as a Victim of Sex Trafficking. Kline’s co-author is  Dan Maurer, who specializes in telling transformative stories under the Dan the Story Man brand. Maurer is also the author of Sobriety: A Graphic Novel, which explains  the 12-step recovery process through comics.

   There has been a lot of media coverage about the book already. Rev. Kevin Kline appeared on KSTP Television in Minneapolis on April 11, and WCCO Radio in Minneapolis on April 12. Stories about the book are currently featured on the website, www.thereporters.org, as well as the following media websites: Rochester Post Bulletin, MN Sun FocusDetroit Lakes Times and the Winona Daily Herald. Another TV interview has been scheduled for April 21 on WDIO-TV in Duluth, Minn.

     Visit the book's website, www.faraway-book.com, for more information, including a list of additional book tour dates and locations.
