Monday, August 7, 1:00 pm (PDT) Radio interview (KPFA-94.1 FM and online at kpfa.org) with Jeanne Blasberg, author of Eden, on Women’s Magazine. Kate Jessica Raphael explores the moral territory of love and secrets across generations. I am so thrilled to be part of this radio interview!
Playwright and poet Cherrie Moraga, co-editor of the class feminist of color book, This Bridge Called My Back, discussed her new play, THE MATHEMATICS OF LOVE, with Lisa Dettmer. In a time-traveling re-encounter with a 16th century female slave-turned-slaveholder, a Mexican woman in the early stages of Alzheimers is forced to concede a radically revised ledger on her life; its loves and losses, in this play which opens at San Francisco’s Brava Theater on August 10. The Stanford Daily says the play has “the power to render its audience speechless – to wrench us from our academic stupor, remind us of the importance of good art, and make us feel a little more awake because of it.”
And Kate Raphael talks with me and fellow author, Jeanne McWilliams Blasberg, in exploring the duties that one generation owes to the next and the previous. My debut novel THINGS UNSAID explores the moral territory of the sandwich generation, who must simultaneously fulfill their obligations to their aging parents and their children reaching adulthood. Jeanne Blasberg’s EDEN spotlights the choices of four generations of women in one family when faced with unplanned pregnancies, and chronicles the consequences of their decisions.
Tune in every Monday to Women’s Magazine on KPFA for lively conversations about art, family and the ways generations communicate – and fail to communicate – what is important to one another.
