The August 2022 edition of Mediate.com’s Great Reads Book Club: “Angels and Earthworms: an unexpected journey to love, joy, and miracles” by Lorraine Segal, interviewed by Alesia Grace Thompson.
Angels and Earthworms, An Unexpected Journey to Joy, Love, and Miracles, is a memoir about a smart, funny, fierce Jewish girl from Southern California who accidentally yet actively participates in most of the major cultural movements of the late 20th and early 21st centuries including the Berkeley peace movement, radical feminism, gay rights, and the AIDS crisis as well as lesbian ballroom dancing, recovering from addiction, finding the Goddess and a spiritual path, and surviving mobbing in academia. She tells about her experiences moving from the cramped confinement of her 1950’s childhood all the way to the rich, layered life of a happily married lesbian and conflict transformation expert in Sonoma County.
Lorraine Segal is a communication and conflict management coach, consultant and educator.
