Our Revolution: A Mother and Daughter at Midcentury

Saturday, April 18th @ 7pm
Bockley Gallery (near Birchbark Books)

Birchbark Books welcomes Honor Moore for a reading of her new book, Our Revolution: A Mother and Daughter at Midcentury. Introduced by Patricia Hampl in conversation with Marian Moore. With the sweep of an epic novel, Our Revolution follows Jenny Moore, a charismatic and brilliant woman whose life changed as she became engaged in the great twentieth-century movements for peace and social justice. Jenny bequeathed to her eldest daughter, Honor, then a twenty-seven-year-old poet, her unfinished writing. As Honor pursued her own career as a writer, she was haunted by her mother’s bequest. Decades later, she delves into Jenny’s pages and forges a new relationship with the passionate seeker and truth teller she finds there. There will be a reception and book signing following the reading.
