PATRICIA HARMAN

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18; 7 PM

PATRICIA HARMAN will introduce The Midwife of Hope River. It centers on Patience Murphy a lay midwife in Appalachia during the Great Depression. She has a “gift” to escort mothers through the challenges of childbirth. Patience takes the jobs that no one else wants, helping those most in need—and least likely to pay. She knows a successful midwife practice must be built on a foundation of openness and trust, but the secrets Patience is keeping are far too intimate and fragile for her to ever let anyone in.

Patricia Harman writes with exquisite detail and authenticity because of her own experience as a midwife in the rural communes where she lived during the ’60 and ‘70s. She continues to work as a nurse-midwife on the faculty of Ohio State University, Case Western Reserve University, and West Virginia University.
