Judith Brenner signing for "The Moments Between Dreams"


About this Event

Join us as we host Judith Brenner, author of "The Moments Between Dreams", which is getting great reviews (4.5/5 stars on B&N, Goodreads, and Amazon, among others)!  Judith will be signing books, and will do a reading and answer questions starting at about 1:00.

Joining Judith is Cheryl Kolb-Untinen, MS Prevention, Education and Clinical Services Program Director at Cornerstone MN. Cheryl will join Judith in the
conversation about how the 1940-50s novel relates to today’s prevalence of domestic abuse, and explain the Cornerstone MN resources, including the DAYONE statewide crisis line which helps those seeking shelter and helps create safety plans.

THE BOOK:

Carol misses red flags about Joe’s need for control before she marries him, dashing her dreams for herself and her family. Trouble escalates after their daughter Ellie is paralyzed by the polio virus and Joe returns from WWII. Carol realizes how brutal waking life can be, and she conceals bruises and protects her children the best she can.

The Moments Between Dreams is a captivating story of a 1940s housewife who conforms to the rulebook of society until Joe pushes her too far. His constant intimidation shrinks Carol’s confidence while she tries to boost Ellie’s. Church-going neighbors in Carol’s tight-knit Polish community are complacent, but Sam, a handsome reporter, stirs up Carol’s zest for life. Despite impossible circumstances, Carol plans a secret escape. Along a risky path, she empowers her daughter to know no limits and teaches her son to stop the cycle of violence and gender discrimination.
