Baby Dearest

By Brooklyn Book Festival

Four novelists grapple with motherhood and the complex web of emotions – revulsion, rebellion, reconciliation, and redemption – it engenders. Susie Boyt (Loved and Missed), Kate Briggs (The Long Form), Guadalupe Nettel (Still Born, translated by Rosalind Harvey), and Olga Ravn (My Work, translated by Sophia Hersi Smith & Jennifer Russell) discuss the fall out and growth of their characters as they embrace or reject social expectations and experiences of bearing a child and mothering.  Moderated by Lauren LeBlanc, board member of the National Book Critics Circle.
