Honoring Our Mothers’ Stories

Tuesday, June 5
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

In the process of delving into their mothers’ worlds, the authors of this unique anthology unearthed complex histories filled with love, laughter, trauma, courage, resilience and determination.

Written with heart and honesty, the authors tell their mothers’ stories, complete with their strengths and imperfections, and with special consideration given to how the circumstances and social norms of their mothers’ era both shaped and compelled their mothers’ choices. 

Compassionate Journey: Honoring Our Mothers’ Stories will be presented by authors Maggie Butler, Cheryl Gillespie, Jenny Radsma, Martha Rice, and Jane Sloven.

Please join us for readings and a discussion. Books will be available for sale.

“Huge and beautiful” ~ Monica Wood

“[A book filled with] light and darkness, of sorrow, anger, tenderness and insight” ~ Michelle Cacho-Negrete
