On Friday, May 7th at 12pm EDT, the Toronto and Boston chapters of the Alumnae-i Network for Harvard Women (ANHW) invites you to an exclusive book reading and conversation with Harvard and Oxford instructor and author, Dr. Elisabeth Sharp McKetta. Dr. McKetta will be sharing excerpts from her latest book She Never Told Me About the Ocean and will be answering questions about the writing and publication process.

McKetta's latest of her nine published books - She Never Told Me About the Ocean - has been described by Arthur Golden, author of Memoirs of a Geisha, as “a heroine’s journey through forgiveness, birth and rebirth, all the while treading the line between honoring the dead and feeling paralyzed by them. She has offered us a complicated portrait of mothers and daughters, cupped inside one another like nesting dolls.”

Please RSVP here to secure your spot. Zoom information will be made available upon registration. All questions and comments can be directed to:
