In honor of Mother's Day next month, I've highlighted a sampling of mother memoirs. Told from the point of view of birth mothers and adopted mothers, sons and daughters, these books capture mother/child relationships in all their complexity. All book summaries are from the publisher's descriptions.
Labor Day and Admission Day holiday closures: All library locations will be closed on Monday, September 7 and Wednesday, September 9. The Main Library and the Brookfield and Eastmont branches will be open on Tuesday, September 8; all other locations will be closed that day.
