Writers LIVE: Joy Thomas Moore

September 26, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Power of Presence: Be a Voice in Your Child’s Ear Even When You’re Not with Them

As the mother of Wes Moore, whose memoir about overcoming the obstacles that face a fatherless young black man was a huge bestseller, Joy Moore is constantly asked: How did you do it? How can you be a good parent, have a career and stay healthy when you don’t have a partner to pick up the slack? Joy’s answer is “presence.” In The Power of Presence, Moore explores seven pillars: heart, faith, mind, courage, financial freedom, values, and connectedness–that all parents can use to positively influence their children. Presented in partnership with the Pratt Library’s “Writers Live” Series.
