We asked scholar, critic, and prize-winning essayist Emily Bernard what she has been thinking about, working on, and reading in this time of isolation and quarantine. In response, she invited us to into her home office to see her ongoing writing projects, quarentine reading (visit Book Post to find Emily’s most recent reviews), and brainstorming toward new work.
Emily also invited viewers to join her Mother’s Day event with writer Honor Moore on May 10 at 4:00pm, hosted by Prairie Lights Book Store, Iowa City. Emily will read from and discuss her book, Black is the Body: Stories From My Grandmother’s Time, My Mother’s Time, and Mine and Honor Moore will read from and discuss her memoir, Our Revolution: A Mother and Daughter at Midcentury.
