Book Reading and Talk by Elizabeth Mosier ’84 on Excavating Memory: Archaeology and Home, hosted by Jackie Silberman ’59 and in conjunction with the Bryn Mawr Book Club.
Researched over seven years, much of it spent processing colonial-era artifacts at Philadelphia’s Independence National Historical Park Archaeology Laboratory, Elizabeth Mosier uses archaeology as a framework to explore personal material including her mother’s memory loss, layering shared experience in creating family and community narratives and exploring the role artifacts play in historical memory.
A graduate of Bryn Mawr and the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College, Ms. Mosier’s nonfiction has been selected as notable in Best American Essays and appears widely in journals and newspapers including Cleaver, Creative Nonfiction, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and Poets and Writers. She writes the “Intersections” column for the Bryn Mawr Alumnae Bulletin.
Seating is limited; first come first served.
