VB Reads...Motherhood by the Book
Motherhood by the Book is led by Claire, VB staffer, mother of a toddler, and stepmother of an adolescent.
The book group meets on the second Sunday of every month at 2pm on the mezzanine level, next to our poetry section and near the Book Fare Cafe, for an hour of spirited discussion of books that celebrate the trials, tribulations, and rewards of motherhood, and what it means to be a mother. This group is by no means exclusive to moms with kids still at home, but much of the selection may be geared toward issues that those moms face. We will read fiction, non-fiction, and parenting books.

discusses China Wakes: The Struggle for the Soul of a Rising Power

The book details Ms. WuDunn's visit to the village of her immigrant grandfather and her shock at the extreme poverty of its citizens, some of whom are her distant cousins.
