Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood

No comments

The Pen Parentis Reading Series in New York City presents two notable authors reading from their work each month in a free, two hour event which concludes with an intimate Q&A and signings at the authors’ discretion.

Come hear great writers read from their work and share how they balance their parenting lives and writing careers. Be inspired, have a glass of wine in a beautiful new literary space, support the arts and toast those who are proving that it is indeed possible to be a writer AND a parent.

April 14th: Arthur Philips & Julie Klam
