So, my friend Maranda Bower of local Alaska business Serenity Grows wrote (another) book!
Supported in Breastfeeding: Stories of Nourishing Wisdom is a collection of "28+ stories [from Alaska mamas] that are normalizing breastfeeding + shedding light on mother shaming, breastfeeding pitfalls, and revolutionizing our mother relationships to bring breastfeeding support to our communities."
To celebrate the launch of the book, Maranda is coming up to Fairbanks to host a Breastfeeding Social + Book Signing on Saturday, March 11 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Fireweed Baby Boutique. In addition to chatting, book signing, and browsing, I'll be there taking fine art breastfeeding (or Mother + Child) portraits! Walk-ins are welcome, but if you KNOW you're coming by and want a guaranteed portrait, you are highly encouraged to purchase a ticket in advance. $40 in advance gets you a signed copy of the book AND your portrait ($45 at the door)! You can grab your ticket online here.
This is a wonderful opportunity to get together with others in the community - and, if you're currently breastfeeding, a great chance to memorialize a fleeting, significant chapter of babyhood in a fine art portrait. I really hope to see you there!
