Kelley Mayhew and other contributors to "Mamas and Papas," the latest anthology from City Works Press, will be reading excerpts from the book at the Upstart Crow Bookstore and Coffeehouse in Seaport Village as part of the "Third Thursday" author series.
About the book: "Mamas and Papas", available in October, fully explores the dimensions of being a mother or father (or not being one)—the good, the bad, the sublime, and the truly horrific. In this multi-genre anthology we include short fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, and memoir. While we published valentines to the experience of being a parent, we also included pieces that explore the difficulty, contradictions, and frustrations of raising children as well as work that explores what it means to not have children or to acquire and parent them in other ways.
