Friday, March 8, 2019 - Lucy Knisley ("Relish", "French Milk", "An Age of License") returns to Challengers for an event 9 months in the making! It's the bedut of her brand new graphic novel KID GLOVES!
"If you work hard enough, if you want it enough, if you're smart and talented and "good enough," you can do anything. Except get pregnant. Her whole life, Lucy Knisley wanted to be a mother. But when it was finally the perfect time, conceiving turned out to be harder than anything she'd ever attempted. Fertility problems were followed by miscarriages, and her eventual successful pregnancy was plagued by health issues, up to a dramatic, near-death experience in labor and delivery. Kid Gloves follows Lucy's personal transition into motherhood, and it also illustrates the history and science of reproductive health from all angles, full of curious facts and inspiring (and notorious) figures in medicine and midwifery."
This event starts at 7:00pm on Friday, March 8th and will be family friendly.
