Launch: Minerva’s Owl by Carol Matthews
January 22 @ 7:00 pm
For 45 years, Carol Matthews has worked as an educator, writer, researcher, as a voice for social justice, and an advocate for the arts and non-profit sectors. Author of four memoirs—her latest is Minerva‘s Owl.
Original, startling, and deeply thought-provoking, Minerva‘s Owl reflects on Hegel’s observation that the owl of Minerva, the Roman goddess of wisdom, spreads its wings only at twilight. Understanding comes late in life and, as Hegel suggests, the past cannot be rejuvenated, only known. Part grief memoir, part love story, this account is an exploration of how bereavement after a long-term marriage, can be experienced as part of an ongoing relationship.
Join us for an evening of mingling as we enjoy Carol’s thought-provoking reading on her roller-coaster journey of bereavement.
