6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
A Maine native, Lois earned her BA in history from the University of Maine. Her love of history and travel led her to seek out unique and beautiful places which she shares through her blog and now her book, Nearaway Places.
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.
