Kate Braestrup, author of the New York Times bestselling memoir, Here If You Need Me, as well as Marriage and Other Acts of Charity and Beginner's Grace: Bringing Prayer to Life, will be speaking at Champlain Valley Unitarian Universalist Society, Sunday, January 14, at 7 p.m. Her talk is titled “Life in Words.”
Braestrup is a writer and thinker for our time. Because of her multiple identities — writer, cop, preacher, mother, spouse, community activist, she bridges with compassion and understanding the divisions which define our world, the fracturing of our national community into absolutist, armed camps.
This event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
Her talk is sponsored by Champlain Valley Unitarian-Universalists, Vermont Book Shop, Middlebury Area Clergy Association, Charles Scott Center for Religious and Spiritual Life (Middlebury College), Living and Dying Partnership, Center for Community Engagement (Middlebury College).
CVUUS is located at 2 Duane Court, very near Middlebury Union High School (MUHS) and parking is available at MUHS.
