Author talk: Mother, daughter discuss their unique writing journeys

Event has passed

ROCKLAND — Rockland Public Library presents a unique evening of conversation between a mother and daughter who are both authors, Thursday, Feb. 6, at 6:30 p.m., at the Library.

Mother and daughter, Judith Carpenter and Amy Carpenter, launched books within one month of each other last fall. Their books are very different, but both felt called to write them in hopes of offering a useful response to some of the challenges of this time.

A licensed psychotherapist (Amy) and an episcopal priest (Judith), they each took about a year to complete the books that have earned them both glowing reviews thus far, according to the Library, in a news release.

For years, these two have honored, celebrated, and encouraged one another’s writing, despite their differences and unique ways of handling challenges. They are excited to tell their writing stories and to share what was most (and least) helpful along the way.

“Come join with us in an evening of conversation,” said the Library.

Judith Carpenter is the author of The Uninvited Goddess: Awakening to a New Era.

Amy Carpenter’s book is Be Strong, Be Wise in the Age of #MeToo: The College Student’s Guide to Sexual Safety.

The program is free and open to the public. Rockland Public Library is located at 80 Union Street.
