“No Perfect Mothers” by Karen Spears Zacharias

June 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

A new, historical fiction presentation by a local High Desert author.

No Perfect Mothers explores characters, historical and imagined, who over the late 1800s to the 1920s were parties to the infamous Buck v. Bell U.S. Supreme Court case of 1927. Here, Carrie is given back what was denied her by the Court and by society some 100 years ago – her own voice and personhood.

Karen Spears Zacharias is an American writer whose work focuses on women and justice. She holds an MA in Appalachian Studies from Shepherd University and an MA in Creative Media Practice from the University of West Scotland. She lives at the foot of the Cascade Mountains in Deschutes County, Oregon. Zacharias taught First Amendment Rights at Central Washington University and continues to teach at writing workshops around the country.
