Are you a big fan of Sue Monk Kidd like me?
When I started Words To Mouth, one of my earliest blog posts talked about the excitement of one of my favorite authors/books coming to the big screen—Sue Monk Kidd’s THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES. Well, now that same author and her daughter, Anna Kidd Taylor, are coming to Words To Mouth. Sue and Anna, wrote a mother-daugher memoir called TRAVELING WITH POMEGRANATES and have agreed to take a few moments out of their busy book tour to chat with me on SEPTEMBER 10th. I’m beyond thrilled ~ what an honor!
From a conversation with Sue on Reading Group Choices:
My next book (due out next September) is a memoir that I just finished. It’s co-authored with my daughter, Ann Kidd-Taylor, Traveling with Pomegranates. It’s a mother-daughter story, but it’s also a story of two women; we’re telling stories from two ends of life. It was written when I turned 50 and my daughter graduated from college, and we traveled together to Greece. It became an extraordinary time in our lives. It’s a multi-layered memoir of both of us trying to find our place.
Leave a comment below, email me, or call in and submit your question to Sue and/or Anna and I’ll be happy to pass it along and ask them for you. If you’ve been lucky enough to have read an advance copy of TRAVELING WITH POMEGRANATES, let us know what you think—without giving too much away…I’m still awaiting my copy to arrive in the mail.
The following clip from a commencement speech given by Sue and Anna at Columbia College, SC is a wonderful dose of inspiration, especially around the 4–minute mark—Give it a listen and check back for the full Words To Mouth audio interview mid-September:
