About the event


It’s pretty clear that Tolstoy was wrong when he suggested that “Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” Happy families—those we create, those we choose, and those we are born into—are as diverse and unique as love itself. 

Join our host, Matthew Pearson, whose family was the focus of the documentary “The Mamas and the Papas: How two Ottawa couples became co-parents” for a conversation with Rick Prashaw and Amanda Jette Knox, whose new books shed a light on love’s power to overcome obstacles and the many ways families can support each other in a world that is too often cruel and unwelcoming. Tickets
