Losing Their Religion Sun 11 Sep, 12pm
Louise Omer and Tom Tilley grew up in the Pentecostal church, but came to question their faith later in their lives while on very different journeys. See them in conversation with Adolfo Aranjuez about their captivating new memoirs, which recount their interrogation of long-held beliefs, breaking free and reinvention. Omer’s Holy Woman blends feminist theology and travel writing to examine the nexus of patriarchy and modern religion; Tilley’s Speaking in Tongues pieces together a powerful coming-of-age story about building your true self.
