The Baby Thief: The Untold Story of Georgia Tann, the Baby Seller Who Corrupted Adoption
Book by Barbara Bisantz Raymond
Co-sponsored by Adoption Network

Georgia Tann, nationally lauded for arranging adoptions out of her children’s home in Memphis, Tenn., was actually a baby seller who terrorized vulnerable mothers by stealing their children and selling them. An adoptive mother and award-winning journalist who interviewed hundreds of Tann victims, Barbara Raymond has written a riveting account of this dark chapter in American history. The Lakewood Public Library welcomes Raymond for a "Meet the Author Night." Books will be available for sale and signing at this event.

Actress Octavia Spencer purchased the movie rights to the book.
