A Celebration of Motherhood: Trio of Authors Talk About Mothers and Mamas!

May 2, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Get ready for a very special evening celebrating motherhood at Main Street Reads on May 2, 2019, from 4:30 – 7:00 p.m.

On hand to sign books and discuss their work will be three unique authors, each with a different take on mothers:

Bren McClain, whose novel, One Good Mama Bone, was the winner of the 2017 Willie Morris Award for Southern Fiction, and a Pulpwood Queen book club selection, explores the importance of motherhood in her book, and the lengths a mother will go for her children. Bren will be visiting us from Nashville, Tennessee, but hails from Anderson, SC

Pattie Welek Hall, whose personal memoir, A Mother’s Dance, was a Pulpwood Queen Book Club selection and Best Book Awards finalist, chronicles her journey to bring her son back from a life-threatening accident and traumatic brain injury. Pattie is a local educator and author, residing and teaching right here in Summerville!

Bonnie Compton, whose Mothering With Courage has become a key parenting book for so many, outlines a truly mindful approach to being a mother who can listen more, worry less and love deeply. Bonnie is a child and adolescent therapist, parent coach, pediatric nurse practitioner, and one of America’s most trusted resources when it comes to parenting. Her results-driven techniques have touched and transformed countless parents and kids around the world.

All are welcome and we’ll have special treats for you mothers!
