The Good Mother Myth: Redefining Motherhood to Fit Reality

  1. The Good Mother Myth: Redefining... Sale Trade Paper $7.98

February 18, 2014 @ 7:30 pm

1005 W Burnside St. Portland, OR 503 228 4651

In an era of mommy blogs, Pinterest, and Facebook, The Good Mother Myth (Seal Press) dismantles the social media-fed notion of what it means to be a "good mother." This collection of essays takes a realistic look at motherhood and provides a platform for real voices and raw stories, each adding to the narrative of motherhood we don't tend to see in the headlines or on the news. The honesty of these essays creates a community of mothers who refuse to feel like they're in competition with others, or with the notion of the ideal mom — they're just trying to find a way to make it work. Editor Avital Norman Nathman will be joined for a panel discussion by contributors Arwyn Daemyir and Stephanie Kaloi, as well as by Andi Zeisler, cofounder and editorial/creative director of Bitch Media.
