About the Event

Folio is pleased to welcome back poet Judith Skillman and her daughter Jocelyn Skillman for a timely mother and daughter poetry reading on today's events. In Our Resemblance  is a book on inter-generational communication, love, and sharing in the divisive times we find ourselves. Perhaps only love and respect for each other can save us from the many disasters facing us today. Our very own survival hinges on it.

"In Our Resemblance is an invitation from Jocelyn and Judith to reckon with the pain of the pandemic, the joy of children, the darkness of memory, the healing force of nature, and the aching, infinite love between a mother and daughter."

--Sydney Parker, writer, The Atlantic, The Guardian, & Seattle’s Child
