GET MOM SOMETHING GREAT TO READ

If your mom loves nothing quite so much as a good read, we’ve got you covered with books of every kind. We still have signed first editions of bibliophile favorites Elizabeth Strout’s THE BURGESS BOYS and Amy Tan’s THE VALLEY OF ENLIGHTENMENT in limited quantities, so get them before they’re gone! For the media-loving mother, MARY AND LOU AND RHODA AND TED offers a glimpse behind the scenes of The Mary Tyler Moore Show and into the lives of the cast, crew, and female writers who lent their own stories to the groundbreaking sitcom. And there’s something for everyone in THE MOST OF NORA EPHRON, a collection of Ephron’s wit and wisdom in every format: essays, journalism, stage and screenplays, and more.

NON-TRADITIONAL FAMILIES

Not all families fit the traditional mother-father-child model, but those families deserve celebrating, too! TEACHING THE CAT TO SIT by Michelle Theall offers a warm and heartfelt look at being gay and a parent, sharing not only her personal-turned-public struggle to have her son enrolled in Catholic school, but also her own internal family conflicts over her sexuality. For the strong women in your life that may have taught you what a mother couldn’t, pick up REDEFINING REALNESS, Janet Mock’s riveting and courageous autobiography of her life as a transgender woman in the public eye. Her story redefines realness, courage, self-determination, and the true meaning of female solidarity.

MEMOIRS OF MOTHERS

It’s the season for celebrating mothers and their stories, and Mom will find a lot to love in these funny, heartwarming, and deeply felt memoirs of women and their families. Elaine Lui’s LISTEN TO THE SQUAWKING CHICKEN paints a loving, complex relationship between mother and daughter with deliciously readable and deeply hilarious prose. THE MADWOMAN IN THE VOLVO gives a candid and laugh-out-loud look at Sandra Tsing Loh’s life as a mother and artist while she navigates her rollercoaster ride through menopause. You’ll need tissues for both of these books, for tears of the happy AND sad varieties.
