American Ancestors and NEHGS together with the Boston Public Library and the State Library of Massachusetts present this virtual event in the American Stories, Inspiration Today author series.
Hear from the celebrated author Honor Moore (The Bishop’s Daughter, The White Blackbird) about her new biography-memoir—the story of her mother and herself, their relationship and changing lives as 20th-Century women. With the sweep of an epic novel, Moore introduces readers to Jenny McKean Moore, her charismatic and brilliant mother who was born into privilege on Boston’s North Shore, and whose life shifted dramatically as she engaged in the 1960s peace and social justice.
Claire Messud, the author of The Burning Girl and The Emperor’s Children, will moderate.
This virtual author event is free the public.
