ROXBURY — The Minor Memorial Library will welcome author Honor Moore for a reading from her most recent book “Our Revolution” at 7 p.m. Thursday, February 25 via Zoom.
Honor Moore’s new book “Our Revolution” is a vivid and honest memoir/biography of her mother and an intimate history of the ideas and events that jolted America during the three decades after the Second World War.
After her reading, Ms. Moore will be joined in conversation by author Roxana Robinson.
Honor Moore is a playwright, memoirist, editor and poet. She has edited selections of Amy Lowell’s poems, contemporary plays by American women and poems from Russia.
She is the author of several poetry collections, including “Memoir” and “Red Shoes;” two memoirs, “The White Blackbird: A Life of the Painter Margaret Sargent by her Granddaughter” and “The Bishop’s Daughter;” the play “Mourning Pictures” and numerous essays and reviews.
Her prose has also drawn much praise and created some controversy for its direct treatment of sexuality, faith, family and coming of age – central topics in much of her writing in all genres.
Besides Ms. Moore’s roles as a writer, she is the founder of the Poetry Series at Manhattan Theatre Club and has taught at NYU, Columbia, the New School and Wesleyan University.
Roxana Robinson is the author of ten books including six novels, three collections of short stories and the biography of Georgia O’Keeffe.
Four of these were chosen as New York Times Notable Books, two as New York Times Editor’s Choices.
