Amy Blackstone: CHILDFREE BY CHOICE
Luther College graduate and Minnesota native Amy Blackstone will be at Dragonfly Books on Thursday, September 26 at 7 pm.
"Amy Blackstone explores the lives of people who have chosen not to have children, and puts to rest the idea that such people are ungenerous, showing us a wonderful swathe of humanity neither more nor less selfish than their peers. Writing with wit and self-assurance, she skewers the common perception that it is normal to want children, and presents another set of options, another way of life, another means to do good in the world. In her capacious work, childfree emerges as not a second choice, but a cherished identity."-- New York Times bestselling author and National Book Award winner Andrew Solomon
