Author Talk and Book Signing for "We Got This" - Dr. Marika Lindholm shares Solo Mom Stories of Grit, Heart, and Humor

Author talk and book signing! In "We Got This", Dr. Marika Lindholm and her fellow editors have brought together seventy-five solo mom writers to tell the truth about their lives―their hopes and fears, their resilience and setbacks, their embarrassments and triumphs. Includes essays from Amy Poehler, Anne Lamott, Elizabeth Alexander and others. Children are welcome at this event! For more information + to RSVP please visit the Oblong Books website.

In the United States, more than 15 million women are parenting children on their own, either by circumstance or by choice. Too often these moms who do it all have been misrepresented and maligned. Not anymore. Bound together by their strength, pride, and―most of all― their dedication to their children, they broadcast a universal and empowering message: You are not alone, solo moms―and your tenacity, courage, and fierce love are worthy of celebration.

 

Dr. Marika Lindholm founded ESME.com to ignite a social movement of solo moms. A trained sociologist, Lindholm taught courses on inequality, diversity, and gender at Northwestern University for over a decade. In addition to publishing numerous scholarly articles, she has been a regular contributor to Psychology Today, Working Mother, Mind Body Green, and Talk Space. She has published essays and fiction in the Daily News, Elephant Journal, The Hill, Ms., Silent Voices, and the Southern Indiana Review.
