Tuesday, February 6th: Montana author Molly Caro May joins us for a reading from her new book Body Full of Stars. 7pm.
Body Full of Stars is one woman’s story—dark and tender, honest and corporeal— that reveals deeper truths about how disconnected many modern women are from their bodies. It is her “postpartum awakening.” It is also a joyful and tenderhearted celebration of the greatest story of all time: mothers and daughters, partners and co-parents, and the feminine power surging beneath it all.
Molly Caro May is a writer whose work explores body, place and the foreign/familiar dichotomy. She runs writing workshops with the aim of democratizing writing and taking it down from the distant pedestal we keep it on as a culture. Her first book, The Map of Enough earned a starred Kirkus review and was lauded as “an impressive debut memoir . . . May joins the ranks of Gretel Ehrlich and Annie Proulx”; Elle Magazine called it “addictive” and Booklist wrote, “it is a more homegrown version of Eat, Pray, Love.” She is the co-founder of the Thunderhead Writers’ Collective and received a writing fellowship at the Taft Nicholson Environmental Humanities Center, where she wrote the first draft of her second book. After living in six countries and eight states in the US, she’s now found a home base in Montana where she lives with her husband, two young daughters and Great Dane mutt.
