Mamapalooza: A Mother’s Day Mini-Marathon Reading
Bookends & Beginnings, Evanston
We think Mom deserves flowers on Mother’s Day. But we also think she deserves to be recognized as someone who can’t be reduced to a sentimental greeting card message. So we’re hosting 10 of the most eloquent, articulate chroniclers of mothers and motherhood around for a reading extravaganza centered on motherhood as it really is: its joys and headaches, its laughter and tears, its unexpected rewards and disappointments, and of course, its infuriating tendency to lead to screaming by both the mother and the mothered.
The readings are free and open to the public. Books by all the authors will be available for purchase and autographing. Every mother who comes will, in fact, receive the flower she so richly deserves, courtesy of Bookends & Beginnings.
Nina Barrett, Her Own Accord: American Women on Identity, Culture, and Community, Michele Weldon, Escape Points: A Memoir, and Ellen Blum Barish, Views From the Home Office Window: On Motherhood, Family, and Life.
