If you’ve read Barbara Mahany’s Slowing Time or any of her essays in the Chicago Tribune you know what a gift her words are to the soul. She is equally inspiring and genuine in person!
Mahany is returning to The Well Spirituality Center in La Grange Park on Thursday, October 5, 7-9 pm to share some insights and wisdom from her latest book, Motherprayer: Lessons in Loving. The evening will include refreshments, time for book signings, and time with Barbara where she’ll share tales about motherhood and read from Motherprayer. [BOOK YOUR SEATS NOW]
Published in April, Motherprayer has been garnering praise from Spirituality & Practice, National Catholic Reporter and other literary publications. Publisher’s Weekly in a May 1st starred review wrote, “Mahany’s journalistic eye for detail and lyrical prose breathe new life into the seemingly simple, almost mundane aspects of motherhood—wet washcloths on feverish foreheads, rainy afternoons spent looking for worms, and cold winter mornings spent stirring porridge. She beautifully captures how mothering—loving deeply day in and day out, even when stretched to emotional and physical limits—can itself be sacramental.”
