Just in time for Mother's Day, award-winning author Jennifer Gilmore will discuss her new novel, The Mothers, a powerful and unforgettable story of love and family. Jesse and Ramon are a happy, loving couple who turn to adoption after years of trying to get pregnant, unprepared for the labyrinthine and occasionally heartbreaking process. Jennifer Gilmore is the author of Golden Country, a 2006 New York Times Notable Book and a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and the National Jewish Book Award, and Something Red, a New York Times Notable Book of 2010. Her work has appeared in Allure, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The New York Times Book Review, Vogue, and The Washington Post.
"The Mothers is a searing examination of the very human desire to be that seemingly simple thing: a mother. Jennifer Gilmore explores the emotional depth and breadth of mothering with raw honesty and her signature grace." -Ann Hood, author of The Red Thread and The Knitting Circle
