Mother’s Day Book Special: I’ve Always Meant to Tell You: Letters to Our Mothers: An Anthology of Contemporary Women Writers

Weekly Book Special: April 27th-May 3rd

Mother’s Day is fast approaching — May 2nd is a day to cherish time spent with your mother, grandmother or daughter. This week’s special is:

I’ve Always Meant to Tell You:
Letters to Our Mothers:
An Anthology of Contemporary Women Writers

Edited by Constance Warloe (Hardcover, 504 pages, 1997, $22.00)

I've Always Meant to Tell You

In this collection of original letters, more than 75 daughters, including Joyce Carol Oates, Barbara Kingsolver, Ntozake Shange, and Hilma Wolitzer, speak to their mothers, both living and deceased, with messages that come straight from the heart.

These are novelists, poets, essayists, humorists, cartoonists and journalists of different ages and cultures. Together they share thoughtful, provocative, funny, and sometimes painful revelations — memories, confessions, poems, fables and tales — at once personal and universal. Illustrations.

Our favorite letter is from Barbara Kingslover to her mother (click to enlarge):

I've Always Meant to Tell You

Library Journal “highly recommends” this book for women’s studies, literature, and general collections. “The letters are addictive,” writes Kirkus Reviews. “Like listening to a top-40 station, you hang on to hear what’s next.”
