Bottles, the premiere fine wine, craft beer, and liquor store on the East Side of Providence joins Books on the Square, the East Side’s independent bookstore for independent minds, in welcoming author Peter Andreas, reading from his memoir, Rebel Mother, on Saturday May 20 with a cocktail reception at 6:30pm featuring drinks from South America.
About the book: A Mennonite housewife turned Marxist revolutionary. A kidnapped son. A life on the run in South America.
Peter Andreas’s unique upbringing is recounted with candor and courage in Rebel Mother: My Childhood Chasing the Revolution, an extraordinary tale of a deep parent-child bond and the joy and toll of growing up with a radical mother in a radical age.
