An Evening with Julia Munemo
Thursday, February 13th, 7.00pm
The Bennington Bookshop

Williamstown author Julia McKenzie Munemo has a memoir coming out this month. We are celebrating her book, The Book Keeper, with a reception and reading at the Bookshop on 13th February at 7.00pm.

Decades after her father died, Julia learned that he wrote interracial pornography. She hid the stack of his old paperbacks from her Zimbabwean husband, their mixed-race children, and herself before realizing her obligation to understand her racial legacy. The Book Keeper explores that legacy.

There will be an opportunity for questions, and Julia will sign copies of her book, which will be available for sale at the event.

The event is free and open to the public. 

Julia completed a bachelor’s degree in languages and literature at Bard and a master’s in education at Harvard. After working in educational publishing for many years, she earned an MFA in creative nonfiction from the Stonecoast Program at the University of Southern Maine.
