Brit Bennett’s, THE MOTHERS & Signed GIVEAWAY

mother

Recently author, Brit Bennett facilitated a workshop here in Miami that I was able to attend. To say it was an intellectually stimulating three days, is an understatement. Her book, THE MOTHERS (Riverhead) was one of HuffPost’s 2016 Top Beach Reads! So, here we are in 2017 beach season, and I’m happy to have one signed copy to giveaway! We’re thrilled to share that SCANDAL actress, Kerry Washington has purchased the film rights to THE MOTHERS and plans to bring it to theatres. Of course, we can’t wait!

*****

THE MOTHERS follows Nadia and Aubrey through their years to womanhood. There’s a sense of loneliness and yearning for each as they navigate life, making choices and suffer the consequences of their decisions. Ultimately, THE MOTHERS is about love, giving and accepting.

bbBorn and raised in Southern California, Brit Bennett graduated from Stanford University and later earned her MFA in fiction at the University of Michigan, where she won a Hopwood Award in Graduate Short Fiction as well as the 2014 Hurston/Wright Award for College Writers. Her work is featured in The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, The Paris Review, and Jezebel.

We have one signed copy of THE MOTHERS to giveaway. Just tell us something about your mother – preferably positive. 🙂  We’ll announce a winner after the July 4th holiday.

  1. Sounds like a good read! My Mum is from England and was always a bit different from my friend’s moms because of her upbringing. Now I am an adult and can see she always wanted the best for me..now if only my teen kids could see that about me lol!

  2. My mother and I had a testy relationship. That being said, she taught me grace and composure. That I sometimes forget is on me, not her.

  3. My mother is from England. She grew up in Boar’s Hill. She came to America when she was 12 years old. Before the move, it was just her and her mother most of the time. They walked frequently to the library and checked out many books. My love of reading came from her.

  4. My mom said she couldn’t sing, so she read to us. She would buy 8 Little Golden books a month…it was $1 for 8…. because she got tired of reading them over and over. Apparently, when I was 4 I memorized one and was “reading” it to my younger sister. My mom thought I was really reading at first. She wanted us to love books…all 4 of us love to read.

  5. My Mom was the best. She raised 5 daughters and always put herself first. When people came to the house the first thing she did was feed them. She made a shower umbrella for my bridal shower. I kept it and plan to give it to my daughter at her bridal shower because my Mom always called my daughter her Angel.

  6. My mom was an amazing woman. She loved each one of us kids for who we were. She was always there to help with whatever we needed. She was also the most crafty person I think I’ve ever met. There was nothing she couldn’t do if she put her mind to it.
