From page A4 | May 14, 2013 |

Award-winning memoir writers Linda Joy Myers and Judith Newton will read from and discuss their recently published memoirs, “Don’t Call Me Mother” and “Tasting Home: Coming of Age in the Kitchen” at 7:30 p.m. Friday at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St.

Moderated by Sacramento Book Talk columnist Trina Drotar, the event will focus on the authors’ personal writing journeys, themes and messages in memoirs, the sometimes-difficult decisions that must be made, and questions from the audience.

Myers is the founder and president of the National Association of Memoir Writers and the author of “The Power of Memoir — How to Write Your Healing Story” and “Don’t Call Me Mother.” Myers has been a therapist in Berkeley for more than 30 years, and combines her background in art, clinical work and writing in her work.

Newton is professor emerita of women and gender studies at UC Davis, where she directed the Women and Gender Studies Program for eight years and the Consortium for Women and Research for four. She is the co-editor of five works of nonfiction on 19th century British women writers, feminist criticism, women’s history and men’s movements. “Tasting Home” won an Independent Publishing Award in 2013.
