Moments of Seeing: Reflections from an Ordinary Life with Katrina Kenison
In this long-awaited collection of essays from her popular blog, Katrina Kenison gives voice to the simple joys and private longings of women everywhere. Here are the deeply felt and beautifully articulated moments of life as it is really lived – family dinners, the poignant arrivals and departures of growing children, the triumphs and tumult of parenting, the ups and downs of friendship, the challenges of marriage, the delicate balance between solitude and intimacy, the fleeting beauty of the seasons, the death of loved ones, the march of time. Join us as we welcome Katrina Kenison, who will read from her latest work. Ms. Kenison is the author of three books tracing the seasons of a woman’s life, perhaps best known for The Gift of an Ordinary Day: A Mother’s Memoir.
