      White Hart Speaker Series: Honor Moore

      With the sweep of an epic novel, Honor Moore's Our Revolution follows Jenny Moore, a charismatic and brilliant woman whose life changed as she became engaged in the great twentieth-century movements for peace and social justice.

      Jenny bequeathed to her eldest daughter, Honor, then a twenty-seven-year-old poet, her unfinished writing. As Honor pursued her own career as a writer, she was haunted by her mother’s bequest. Decades later, she delves into Jenny’s pages and forges a new relationship with the passionate seeker and truth-teller she finds there. Our Revolution is a vivid, absorbing account of two women navigating the twentieth century and a daughter’s story of the mother who shaped her life as an artist and a woman.

      “In Moore’s supremely capable hands, what began as a labor of love and filial duty expands into a dazzling epic portrait of a fascinating American family and a mother-daughter story unlike any other. A superb feat of empathetic imagination and meticulous historical reconstruction, full of drama, passion, and the deepest wisdom.”- Sigrid Nunez, National Book Award–winning author of The Friend

      Honor Moore is the author of The Bishop's Daughter, a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, The White Blackbird, a New York Times Notable Book, as well as three collections of poems. She lives in New York City.
