Join us at Kepler’s Literary Foundation for an evening on what we don’t talk to our mothers about, and how it affects us, for better or for worse. Editor of this collection Michele Filgate and contributor Nayomi Munaweera offer us a candid look at our relationship with our mothers.

The idea for What My Mother and I Don’t Talk About: Fifteen Writers Break the Silence came to Michele after an essay she wrote about how being abused by her stepfather affected her relationship with her mother went viral, shared on social media by Anne Lamott, Rebecca Solnit, and many others.

This highly-anticipated collection of essays has already garnered high praise from Elizabeth Gilbert and Lidia Yuknavitch. And the best part is, if you have a mother, this raw, honest, and poignant evening will resonate with you.

RSVP now for this May 3rd evening you won’t want to miss and pick up a copy of the book everyone will be talking about.
