The Gift of Time: Town Clock CDC's Mission to Heal (Comic Book)
by Lauren Weinstein

Award-winning cartoonist and Town Clock artist-in-residence Lauren Weinstein has created an original comic book about Town Clock CDC and our brave resident survivors. Drawing from interviews with Town Clock staff, board members, and survivors, Lauren explores Town Clock's history and how it transforms the lives of women and children who have experienced domestic violence. Named one of The Comics Journal's "Best Comics of 2021" for its stunning artwork and compassionate storytelling, The Gift of Time is a testament to the work of Town Clock and the healing power of art.
