The Importance of Mother's Day

Bridget B. here to let you know that I'm set to host the next edition of Bread & Roses on KBOO 90.7FM, Friday, May 8, 2009 from 6pm - 7pm.

Given that this show falls right before Mother's Day, I'd like to bring to your attention the what, why, when and by whom Mother's Day was conceived, what it has become over time and what you can do to re-direct this day back towards its original meaning.

During this one hour show, I'll share with you the "Mother's Day Proclamation", as recited by some famous female actors and activists, I'll include some Mother's Day stories and call your attention to organizations like CodePink that are making a difference as it relates to feminism, Mother's Day and the national agenda.

You can join the conversation when I open the phone lines to hear from you, our Bread and Roses listeners, as you tell us what Mother's Day means to you this Friday, May 8, 2009 on KBOO 90.7FM from 6pm - 7pm.

An Evening with Lidia Yuknavitch, Author of 'The Chronology of Water'

Bread and Roses hosts Leigh Anne Kranz, Delphine Criszensco and Ashley Thirstrup interview Lidia Yuknavitch, a local writer, teacher, activist and feminist. She is the author of three works of short fiction and literary criticism.  She is an Instructor of English and Women’s Studies Advisor at Mt Hood Community College.   

Her recent memoir, The Chronology of Water: A Memoir is a personal story, though universal. She was born to an angry man’s house, where tears got her sent to the crybaby corner and her voice left for years. She found solace in her sister and swimming, water and words, and a journal hidden under her bed, writing her voice back.

Water got her out of that house, a swimming scholarship to Texas Tech, sheer propulsion of body and will. It was a narrow escape. With rage to burn, she rebelled in the ways that hurt women do, using her body as a battering ram to feel nothing.

The stillbirth of her firstborn, a daughter, finally made her go numb.

It was water and rocks, good mentors and men, art and words, that introduced her to her intellect and made her feel—and write. She found her tribe, gave birth to a son, and made her own happy home.

A universal hero’s journey.

Lidia discusses the memoir, as well as her latest literary works.
