"Listen to Your Mother" is a nationally-organized series of live readings from local authors and performers on the subject of motherhood. Planned for the Friday before Mother's Day at the Memorial Art Gallery, the readings are an eclectic selection of Rochesterian perspectives on parenting that are as beautiful and varied as their authors. Whether the stories are drawn from experiences of being a mother, or having a mother, each performer has rich contributions to offer. Friday will feature communications coach, adjunct professor, and mother Shira May; professional storyteller, educator, and soon-to-be-grandmother Patricia Marino; PR specialist, writer, homeschooling mother Katie Remis; and RCSD counselor, actor, cellist, and son Harry Roldán.
"Listen to Your Mother" will be performed on Friday, May 8, at the Memorial Art Gallery, 500 University Avenue. 7:30 p.m. (Doors at 7 p.m.) $17. listentoyourmothershow.com/rochester.
