"MHIC hosts 'Vanilla Mommy' reading"Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center invites you to join us for light refreshments and a warm beverage as we welcome Bradie Moore to Stage One for a reading from her book Vanilla Mommy. "Bradie and her daughter Amanda have a story that addresses heritage and community connection, and sense of place that is thoughtful, and compelling, funny and uplifting", says Gwen Trice of Maxville Heritage. We will open for a discussion with Bradie and Amanda after presentation. Books will be available for sale at the event and at the Bookloft.
Vanilla Mommy is a unique non-fiction story about how a young, single white woman adopts a five-year old African American girl from the Los Angeles County Department of Children's Services. This transracial family discovers how to live in two worlds, black and white. Bradie learns to "Go Deep" both spiritually and in the new black world she gradually becomes a part of.
Bradie Moore is the pen name of Linda Rhine, an informal educator living in Central Oregon. Ms. Rhine has her Master’s in Education and is currently studying for a Doctorate in Early Childhood Education. She has over twenty years of experience in formal and informal education institutions. Her greatest joy is watching her daughter grow into a strong and beautiful black woman.
