Mary Moore Easter: ‘Keeping the Past with Eliza Winston’

December 6 @ 7:00 pm-9:00 pm


Poet Mary Moore Easter will give a live performance from her chapbook “Free Papers: poems inspired by the testimony of Eliza Winston, a Mississippi slave escaped to freedom in Minnesota in 1860.” In moments of discovery, ancestor story and full-throated song, hear Eliza’s courage, doubt, love and personal critique of her situation come alive. Please register to join us on Dec. 6

This event is part of the Friends Forum: A Series for Curious Minds, brought to you by the Friends of the U of M Libraries. After the program, a dessert reception and book signing with the author will take place. Books will be available for purchase courtesy of the University of Minnesota Bookstores.
