Featured Speaker: Twyla Dell, PhD, "We Are Our Mothers' Daughters"
Musical Guest: Julian Davis
Between Hilary Clinton’s July 29 nomination speech that ended with “I am my mother’s daughter and my daughter’s mother” and October 6 (a little over two months), Twyla Dell organized eight of her friends and their friends to write their mothers’ stories and publish them in the volume, “We Are Our Mothers’ Daughters, 9 Women Who Made a Difference.” It was their effort to promote Hillary Clinton’s run for the White House as the first woman president. Among their many self-discoveries in this process was the realization that to really know yourself, you need to write your mother’s story. Five of the authors are local and will give excerpts of their mothers’ stories and their realizations about themselves. Twyla Dell wrote her own mother’s valiant story of running from state to state away from an abusive husband and father to protect her children’s very lives. Now freshly returned from the Women's March on Washington, she will share stories of that journey as well. A second volume of “We Are Our Mothers’ Daughters” is accepting mother stories for a Mother’s Day 2017 volume.
