Fort Greene Nonfiction Book Group discusses And Now We Have Everything: On Motherhood Before I Was Ready
Led by Greenlight bookseller Katie, our nonfiction book group in Fort Greene reads and discusses the most fascinating topics in nonfiction, both classic and contemporary, with seasonal themes covering a variety of genres. For January, the group discusses Meaghan O’Connell’s And Now We Have Everything, a raw, funny, and fiercely honest account of becoming a mother before feeling like a grown up. When Meaghan O'Connell got accidentally pregnant in her twenties and decided to keep the baby, she realized that the book she needed—a brutally honest, agenda-free reckoning with the emotional and existential impact of motherhood—didn't exist. So she decided to write it herself. Channeling fears and anxieties that are still taboo and often unspoken, And Now We Have Everything is an unflinchingly frank, funny, and visceral motherhood story for our times, about having a baby and staying, for better or worse, exactly yourself.
Current book group picks are always 15% off at Greenlight, in the store or online.
Greene Grape Annex is located at 753 Fulton Street, across the street from the bookstore.
