Event description

Description

Author Mo Moulton, a longtime friend of The Meeting Point, will talk about their new book, The Mutual Admiration Society: How Dorothy L. Sayers and Her Oxford Circle Remade the World for Women, a group biography of detective novelist Dorothy L. Sayers and her lifelong group of friends. Coming of age in the early twentieth century, the group had access to new rights but also faced major obstacles as they pursued careers ranging from birth-control advocate to theatre producer. They struggled, too, with the stigmas attached to single parenthood and queer and polyamorous relationships in the early 20th century. Their lives shed light on the questions of how to create chosen family and find meaningful work in a world that still doesn't regard you as fully human. Hot cocoa of vegan and non-vegan varieties will be served.
