For over 30 years, Terre and her sisters, Maggie and Suzzy, were the successful singing group known as The Roches. Terre has written a funny, wise, and very candid memoir of her life, both before and after fame. Terre's book, Blabbermouth, is a brave, tender and disturbing book. In it, Terre tells the story of her origins, her adventures as a young teenage girl who leaves the “lilac walls” of her childhood bedroom with the support of her close-knit suburban family, her rise to fame with Columbia Records, her travels on the road from coast to coast, alone with her slightly older sister. (“A teenage Thelma and Louise but without the murders,” Terre describes them.) Terre also tells of her early mentoring by Terri Thal and Dave Van Ronk, Paul Simon, and Michael Tannen, of how the towns of Park Ridge, Hammond, Baton Rouge, San Francisco and Greenwich Village shaped her. She tells riveting tales of her early auditions, her first lover, her first male friend, Derek; reveals the sources of her sense of safety – notably her family – and relates violent encounters that she meets in the world as a teenager. Blabbermouth inhabits an uneasy place where injustices are unresolved. Terre is choosing to “see each other in the big picture,” (as she calls it) by telling her story without apology. Her prose’s clear tone is like that from the gold-leaf rim of a glass stroked by a conductive finger. It’s quite an accomplishment.
What are some of the vital differences between memoir and fiction? On Thursday, May 2 at 6 PM EST I’ll be talking with author David G Hallman about “Writing What We Know and/or Writing What We Imagine.”
David is the author of the intensely moving and beautifully-written memoir August Farewell. He’s also the author of a novel, Searching for Gilead.
He grew up in Waterloo, ON, studied community psychology, and was on the national staff of The United Church of Canada, carrying a wide range of social justice responsibilities.

In addition to his books, he’s the author and editor of many articles and books on ecological themes including A Place in Creation — Ecological Models in Science, Religion and Economics, Ecotheology – Voices from South and North, Spiritual Values for Earth Community, and a major study paper on Climate Change and Poverty — Science, Theology, and Ethics for the National Religious Partnership on the Environment.
