Path to Publishing: Doreen Stock - Three Tales From the Archive of Love (Corte Madera)

Sunday, January 14, 2018 - 4:00pm

Three Tales From the Archive of Love originates in two medieval beggars’ letters, a stone epitaph, and Egyptian papyri dating from the time of the prophet, Jeremiah. Far apart from one another in time, all spring from the lives of women who actually lived them: Two Jewish converts face death by burning during the Spanish Inquisition, a Jerusalemite is brought to Rome in chains, an Egyptian slave is married to a Jewish priest on the Elephantine Island. Voices long suppressed by the larger currents of history let us glimpse the degradations these women suffered during the times in which they lived, all set within the unmistakable power of the bonds of love.

Doreen Stock is a poet, essayist, memoir practitioner, who has been exploring creative nonfiction for thirty plus years from the feminine point of view as a wife, mother of three, single human, and grandmother of ten. Her first book of poems The Politics of Splendor was part of a New American Writers exhibit at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
