Mother Talk: Philadelphia

No comments

If you're in the Philadelphia area, we have another Mother Talk event coming up: Thursday, Sept. 29, at 8 p.m. Here's the official invitation.

    Mother Talk: Thursday, Sept. 29, 8 p.m.
    Sponsored by Literary Mama and Time Out!

    Please join us for "Mother Talk," an old-fashioned literary salon with good food, good company, and good conversation with local writers Andi Buchanan and Miriam Peskowitz, talking about Miriam's book The Truth Behind the Mommy Wars: Who Decides What Makes a Good Mother? Miriam is a mother, writer, and professor, and has appeared on TV, radio, internet and print media throughout the country, including CNN, KQED’s Forum with Michael Krasney, Seattle’s KUOW and KCTS Connects, Philadelphia’s Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane, and The Atlantic Monthly, Bitch, and Bust magazines.

You can email me at my gmail account (andi dot buchanan at etc.) for exact location and to RSVP.


Andrea J. Buchanan is a writer living in Philadelphia. In addition to her latest book, The Double-Daring Book For Girls (HarperCollins), she is the author of the New York Times bestselling The Daring Book For Girls, The Pocket Daring Book For Girls: Things To Do, and The Pocket Daring Book For Girls: Wisdom and Wonder along with Miriam Peskowitz. She is also the author of Mother Shock: Loving Every (Other) Minute of It (Seal Press) and the editor of three anthologies: It’s a Boy: Women Writers on Raising Sons; Literary Mama: Reading for the Maternally Inclined; and It’s a Girl: Women Writers on Raising Daughters (all from Seal Press). Before becoming a writer, Andi was a classical pianist; she studied at the Boston Conservatory of Music, where she earned her bachelor of music degree, and continued her graduate studies at the San Francisco Conservatory, earning a master’s degree in piano performance. Her last recital was at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. She is the mother of a daughter and a son, both of whom are equally daring.
