Former Nebraskan Signing New Book Saturday


Cheryl Reich-Bills, formerly of Nebraska and South Dakota, will be hosting a book signing 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, July 14, at Barb’s Gifts in Sterling.

In addition to signing her new book, “SPLIT,” she is offering a free copy of “Mountain Reflections, A Collection of Stories and Poems” with the purchase of her new book.

Reich-Bills was born in Igloo, S.D., during the 1949 blizzard. She has lived in Nebraska and Colorado most of her life, having also spent time in Arizona and Louisiana.

She has worked as a social worker for 26 years; eight as a school counselor in Colorado

and Nebraska. As a social worker, she provided services through DHH in Family Preservation programs and on sexual abuse treatment teams. She later directed two residential treatment centers for youth at risk, one for males and one for females.

These experiences are what led her to write the book “SPLIT.” SPLIT is about how victims learn perseverance, and how one can survive abuse. SPLIT is dedicated to survivors of trauma. Reich-Bills says at-risk youth, in general, are homeless or abandoned and/or abused and neglected. The book setting is rural in an effort to confront the believe that abuse, neglect and incest are less likely in rural areas than urban centers, according to Reich-Bills.
