Author Lauren Goldman Marshall Reads

Author Lauren Goldman Marshall reads from her new book "My Beautiful Bow: An Adoption Story." The red ribbons of a little girl’s sash become imaginary ties to her birth mother and her adoptive mother in this picture book appropriate for those aged 4-8. Abby wonders if she came from her mother’s belly, like her older sister. When a casual comment at the breakfast table prompts questions, Abby learns how the birth mother who carried her in her belly and the forever mommy who carries her on her hip both love her and have helped to make her who she is. The author will read her book, answer audience questions, and sign books available for sale. Free.
