Listen to Your Mother is a one-day only event presented by the Good Mother Project that showcases writers sharing stories of motherhood.
Listen to Your Mother is an intimate evening of writers sharing their stories of motherhood. This acclaimed series was created in 2010 by founder and National Director Ann Imig and has been presented in 41 cities across North America, with events taking place on or around Mother’s Day each year.
The Vancouver event, the first time it has been held anywhere in Canada, hosts 13 of Vancouver’s most talented writers and bloggers sharing live readings of their stories and compositions about motherhood.
Some of these speakers include Janice Bannister, Karen Barré, Amanda Buck, Pamela Jones, Erika Mitchell, Nancy Painter, Andrea Paterson, Teresa Reid, Eran Sudds, Brooke Takhar, Tina Teeninga, Vanessa Woznow and Mia Zhou. The event is being hosted by local Children’s entertainers Robyn Hardy and Lorraine Pond who you might otherwise know as ‘Bobs & Lolo’.
The Good Mother Project will be donating partial proceeds from the production towards the Pacific Post Partum Support Society.
The Canadian premiere of Listen to Your Mother will be an evening of storytelling and live reading by local talent, writers and bloggers alike, that is sure to capture the essence of motherhood through shared experience, humour and great reflection. Whether you’re a mother or not, you’ll be able to connect deeply to Listen to Your Mother, a true celebration of women and motherhood just in time for Mother’s Day.
