Are YOU Mom enough?

Tuesday, Apr 29, 2014 at 5:12pm

Why are we so obsessed with Motherhood?

How do you think popular culture feeds both the motherhood obsession and the idea of perfection?

Which of these essays were closest to and farthest from your own experience?

And what essays might I be asking about? Those found in the new book The M Word: Conversations about Motherhood, which features a collection of essays on contemporary motherhood by Saleema Nawaz, Alison Pick, Nancy Jo Cullen, Carrie Snyder, and many others, assembled by Kerry Clare. The book is available now in paperback for $22.95.

So, loyal readers, do you have any answers to the above questions? Or to any of the others posed in this list of bookclub questions from Goose Lane Editions? Share your answer in the comments section below, or send it our way on Facebook or Twitter.

And be sure to join us on Tuesday, May 6th, at 7:00 pm in our Winnipeg store for the launch of The M Word! The event will feature the editor of the book, Kerry Clare, as well as writers Ariel Gordon and Kerry Ryan. As with all of our in-store events, the evening is free and open to everyone. Bring your friend, bring your partner, or -- better yet -- bring your mom and celebrate your understanding of the M Word!
