Listen to your mother! For the third time already, listen to your mother or at least to Deborah Goldstein. The South Orange resident, writer, Patch blogger, and mom will read her writing a the third annual LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER reading series. The series will takes place across ten cities at the end of April and in May including New York City on Sunday May 6th at the JCC in Manhattan at 2p.m.
This series was born out of the creative work of mothers who publish online and across the country. "I'll be reading a piece from my blog, Peaches & Coconuts and providing a snapshot of a day in the life of two moms and two small boys," says Goldstein.
The NYC show is being directed by Broadway and TV actress, The Huffington Post contributor, and author Amy Wilson. Nearly 150 total authors, writers, bloggers and performers across the country will read their own poignant essays, giving “Mother’s Day a Microphone.”
"I am thrilled to be performing at the first New York City show," says Goldstein. "I'm not surprised that there are so many writers, performers, mothers and sponsors who want to get involved in what I can only describe as a movement. Ann wrote a great piece about the runaway success of LTYM and why it is essential to participate in conversations about motherhood and the power of the spoken word. What I discovered after the first rehearsal was that these honest stories about being a mom or having a mom or the institution of motherhood connects us all in a very real way."
