Critically acclaimed and award-winning comic creator will be on hand to discuss her new book Kid Gloves: Nine Months of Careful Chaos. Lucy Knisley always wanted to be a mother, but when it was finally the perfect time, conceiving turned out to be harder than expected. Fertility problems were followed by miscarriages, and her eventual successful pregnancy led to a dramatic, near-death experience during labor and delivery. This moving and surprisingly informative memoir follows Lucy’s personal transition into motherhood and also illustrates the history and science of reproductive health from all angles.
