Seven Voices, One Dream
Shortly after Christmas, I also finished reading Seven Voices, One Dream about the seven founders of La Leche League . LLL celebrated its 50th Anniversary in October--how impressive! I really enjoyed the book, it was honest, realistic, and surprising. It was also surprisingly engaging, though the Q & A format was a little distracting sometimes. I really appreciated the chance to connect more with the history of the organization. These women were really radicals for their time and effected tremendous social change. For example, I had no idea people were having homebirths in the 1950's (I thought it was all Twilight Sleep and forceps!).
