The Exponent II Board is pleased to announce that our keynote speaker at this year’s retreat will be Carol Lynn Pearson.

Carol Lynn Pearson is prolific author, writing poetry, plays, and non-fiction. Her book, Goodbye, I Love You, is about the death of her gay husband from AIDS in 1986. In 1989, she began performing Mother Wove the Morning, a one-woman play in which she performs sixteen women throughout history in search of the female face of God.  Her musical, My Turn on Earth, is one of the most beloved and successful Mormon musicals of all time. Carol Lynn has spent virtually all of her years since Goodbye, I Love You as an advocate for both women and gays within Mormonism.

Workshops are currently being planned: nature and the divine, an interactive art project, and Mormon women’s history. We’ll also have our spiritual autobiographies on Sunday and small discussion sessions (let us know what you’d like to discuss!).
