Kathy Johnson & Joan Dempsey Reading & Conversation: “This Is How It Begins”

Event Dates and Times

10/17/2017 - Starts: 7:00 PM
Bear Pond Books, 77 Main Street, Montpelier, VT
Author Joan Dempsey will read from her debut novel, This Is How It Begins (She Writes Press, Oct. 3, 2017), a timely novel about free speech, the importance of empathy, and the bitter consequences of long-buried secrets. The main character, Ludka, is a Polish immigrant who hid art from the Nazis and is now reeling (the novel takes place in 2009) that her grown grandson was fired from his teaching job for being gay.

Kathy Johnson, co-founder / partner of CQ Strategies, LLC and senior training consultant for the Anti-Defamation League, will facilitate a conversation about the novel and it’s relevance to our current political and cultural climate--with a focus on ideas about dealing with bias.

With refreshments, Q&A, and book signing. Free and open to the public.
Samantha Kolber, 802-229-0774, samantha@bearpondbooks.com
