It was very exciting to be part of a new pubilc radio venture. Making Up With Mom was featured on "The Takeaway," family segment on September 28th. I finished taping just in time to attend services for Yom Kippur! Here's the link.
Though the women in our book are kept anonymous, two women graciously agreed to identify themselves and partipate in the interview. They talked about how important their mother's approval was to their choices and ways they've used some of the strategies in the book to make peace with their mothers. I thought they did a fine job communicating the book's messages, and the effect of these issues on their own lives. Thanks so much, Teresa and Lynna! This show did a great job of weaving together the intricacies of the book's themes by involving those we actually interviewed. I was glad to be a part of it, and pleased that a national pubilc radio show took the time to devote attention to the subject of mother/daughter relations.
