Asha Dornfest reports on the most recent Mother Talk event in Portland:
- About 35 women filled the house, and the conversation was lively from the get go. This is Portland –- a small town in the guise of a city –- so many of the guests were connected. . . About 45 minutes later everyone crowded into chairs and onto the floor for more focused discussion. Our guest speakers were Jennifer Lauck and Ariel Gore. . . . Jennifer brought passion and power to the talk, Ariel was saucy and full of self-deprecating humor. Everyone enjoyed hearing them both; once the conversation got started it kept rolling with its own momentum.
Also, Jennifer Lauck reports on the LA Mother Talk event with Hope Edelman and on the Mother Talks she and I did with Jennifer Margulis in Portland and Seattle last month.
