Tuesday, September 17th
Reading by Visiting Writer Nicole Hardy
New York Times columnist Nicole Hardy, author of the new best-selling memoir Confessions of a Latter-Day Virgin, will read from her work this coming Tuesday, September 17th at 6.30pm in the Henry Hudson Room. A question-and-answer session will follow the reading. Admission is free and all are welcome to attend.
Nicole Hardy's groundbreaking memoir Confessions of a Latter-Day Virgin (Hyperion, 2013) asks the timely question: what is it like to be a devout Mormon woman in today’s world? Poet and essayist Hardy first opined on the matter in her New York Times Magazine column, “Modern Love,” in which she laid bare her personal struggles to be true to both her heart and her faith. In this achingly candid memoir, Hardy delves more deeply into the dilemmas faced as she aged out of the church’s “single ward” and into her thirties. At a time when her mind should have been on the Mormon tenets of marriage and motherhood, Hardy found herself more interested in writing. Nicole Hardy is also the author of two books of poetry and her writing has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize.
