A Termination at DIESEL


Tuesday, October 1, 2024 | 6:30 p.m. PT DIESEL Brentwood, 225 26th Street, Suite #33 Santa Monica, CA

On October 1, 2024, join Honor Moore for a reading and conversation in person at DIESEL Brentwood to celebrate her new memoir, A Termination, from A Public Space Books. 

Honor Moore

is the author of seven books, including the memoirs The Bishop's Daughter and Our Revolution, a Mother and Daughter at Midcentury and three collections of poems. For the Library of America, she edited Poems from the Women's Movement and Women's Liberation: Feminist Writings that Inspired a Revolution and Still Can! She lives in New York City, where she teaches in the MFA program at the New School.

A Termination

In 1969, Honor Moore was twenty-three, a theater student yearning for love and working for radical change, but studying administration and keeping secret, even from herself, her wish to imagine the world by becoming a poet. There was an older lover, a professor, and, with another man, an unwanted sexual encounter. That spring, she had an abortion.

Framing the story is a self-portrait of the author fifty-five years later, a woman with a sexual past, a poet who has made her own way. A lyric, searching memoir, A Termination asks what it means to write with full honesty about one's life—to explore who we were, and how our choices shape and allow who we become.
