Honor Moore & Victoria Redel
Housing Works Bookstore, New York City
June 30, 2008
“It’s so interesting – the role of coincidence in writing any book is so mysterious”
— Honor Moore
Honor Moore’s father, the Bishop Paul Moore, captivated the nation by bringing political activism into the priesthood even while he struggled with a deeply guarded secret. Victoria Redel’s fictional father, Itzaak, escaped from Nazi-occupied Belgium with his own haunting secret to keep, most especially from his daughter, Sarah.
The two authors spoke about their books, The Bishop’s Daughter, a memoir, and The Border of Truth, a novel, before a live audience in lower Manhattan at Housing Works Bookstore, a non-profit organization that provides housing, health care, job training, advocacy, and other services for homeless New Yorkers living with HIV and AIDS.
