About this event

On Friday, May 7th at 12pm EDT, the Toronto and Boston chapters of the Alumnae-i Network for Harvard Women (ANHW) invites you to an exclusive book reading and conversation with Harvard and Oxford instructor and author, Dr. Elisabeth Sharp McKetta. Dr. McKetta will be sharing excerpts from her latest book She Never Told Me About the Ocean and will be answering questions about the writing and publication process.

McKetta's latest of her nine published books - She Never Told Me About the Ocean - has been described by Arthur Golden, author of Memoirs of a Geisha, as “a heroine’s journey through forgiveness, birth and rebirth, all the while treading the line between honoring the dead and feeling paralyzed by them. She has offered us a complicated portrait of mothers and daughters, cupped inside one another like nesting dolls.”

To purchase Dr. McKetta's latest book, She Never Told Me About the Ocean, please visit: https://www.amazon.com/She-Never-Told-About-Ocean/dp/1589881532 (for the U.S.) and: https://www.amazon.ca/She-Never-Told-About-Ocean/dp/1589881532 (for Canada).

Please send any questions for the author to: anhwtoronto@gmail.com. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you there!
