The idea for this collection, Have Milk, Will Travel: Adventures in Breastfeeding, has been in my head for years, since I was nursing my own children. It moved in fits and starts, often on hold amidst other projects, but finally this spring took off at full speed, thanks to the advocacy and support of Andrea O’Reilly and Demeter Press. The essays, stories, and poems are by turns laugh-out-loud funny, painfully embarrassing, and bittersweet. My gratitude goes to all of the writers who contributed to the book, and to Cheryl Petran and The Pump Station & Nurtury in Los Angeles, who organized such fabulous launch events last weekend.
While the book is available through the typical large online retailer, consider supporting Brunswick Books, one of the small independent bookstores carrying the title.
