Distinguished Speaker Series Presents

Joyce Maynard

in conversation with

Meredith Hall


Join us for an engaging and lively conversation with best-selling author Joyce Maynard discussing her new novel Count the Ways with author Meredith Hall.

Count the Ways is a poignant story of holding on and learning to let go that traces the lives of one family from the years before Roe v Wade and the Vietnam draft through to the computer age, the early awakenings of the #MeToo era, and beyond. Joyce, a masterful storyteller, has created an achingly beautiful and deeply compassionate novel of home, parenthood, love, hope and forgiveness that captures the blessings and bittersweet of life.

Meredith Hall is the author of the critically acclaimed novel Beneficence, and the memoir Without a Map is a classic of the genre and a New York Times bestseller.
