The Son with Two Moms Book Reading

The Takoma Park Community Center
7500 Maple Avenue
Saturday, April 9, 4:00 PM

Local author Anthony Hynes will read passages from his self-published memoir, which chronicles his childhood as a black boy adopted by two white mothers in D.C. in the ‘90s. When cancer afflicted one of Hynes’ mothers, and the courts threatened his legal guardianship, Hynes had to decide what his identity and his definition of family looked like. Copies of “The Son with Two Moms” are available at the Takoma Park Maryland Library, Busboys and Poets, Politics and Prose, and on Amazon. A Q&A with the author will follow the reading.
