Motherhood + Creativity + Identity: An Author Conversation

Local author Kim Brooks' article "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Mom: Is Domestic Life the Enemy of Creative Work?" was shared and re-shared all over social media when it was first published in New York Magazine earlier this year. Building upon this conversation, Kim has invited several writer friends who also address issues surrounding motherhood in both fiction and nonfiction to discuss the tension between caretaking and creativity. This event will feature:
