P&P Live! : Honor Moore - Our Revolution: A Mother and Daughter at Midcentury

Upcoming Event
Saturday, April 4, 2020 - 3:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. 

The first of nine children born to Jenny Moore and the Right Rev. Paul Moore Jr, Honor Moore inherited her mother’s papers when Jenny died in 1973 at age 50. Haunted by them for decades, it was only after establishing herself as a poet and biographer that she could broach the bequest. In this companion volume to her acclaimed The Bishop's Daughter, Moore tells the story of an independent-minded woman who defied her upper-crust Boston family to marry a war hero, join him as an active partner in his progressive ministry, and at last realize her dream of writing. Intertwining excerpts from her mother’s manuscripts with her own experiences, Moore charts the courses of two remarkable women along with the second-wave feminism that shaped them both.
