40 Weeks (Paperback)
Tues, March 5 at 7:00pm: Join us in welcoming local author Jenny Adams to share her new 1920s-set Mystery novel A DEADLY ENDEAVOR! She'll be in conversation with One More Page favorite Stephen Spotswood.
40 WEEKS, the newest collection from Julia Kolchinsky Dasbach, navigates the world through a poet-mother's sensibilities. She captures stories and lyric moments around and within the speaker's body, made more urgent by the caught voices and presence of her older child. The poems embrace the bare and grotesque nature of pregnancy and childbirth as they consider how to mother a neurodivergent child while pregnant with another, rejecting a culture that views the body with shame. The collection asks how to care for one's own body while caring for so many other bodies and how to connect the identities of mother and writer so one strengthens the other.
