Motherhood, Daughterhood and the Mess in Between
May 30 @ 11:00 am

Judy Batalion grew up in a house filled with endless piles of junk and layers of crumbs and dust; suffocated by tuna fish cans, old papers and magazines, swivel chairs, tea bags, clocks, cameras, printers, VHS tapes, ballpoint pens … obsessively gathered and stored by her mother, who was a hoarder. The first chance she had, she escaped the clutter to create a new identity—one made of order, regimen, and clean white walls. Until, one day, she found herself enmeshed in life’s biggest chaos:motherhood.

In her heartbreakingly funny memoir, WHITE WALLS, Batalion delves into her personal story of “stuff and survival,” and the daunting task of raising a daughter after her own dysfunctional childhood. Her talk is sure to spark conversation about the messiness of motherhood – and the indelible marks that mothers and daughters make on each other’s lives.
