How Mamas Love Their Babies: Blue Line Coffee

  • Blue Line Coffee 4924 Underwood Avenue Omaha, NE, 68132 United States (map)

The Feminist Press and author Juniper Fitzgerald present the hometown launch of How Mamas Love Their Babies, a beautiful picture book about the myriad ways mamas provide for their children—and the first to depict a sex-working parent. The evening will include a musical performance by the Blue Line Quartet, a reading and signing with the author, and a discussion with local sex-working mamas. Books and refreshments will be available for sale! 

Mamas work in different ways to take care of their babies, but everything they do is out of love.

Illustrating the myriad ways that mothers provide for their children—piloting airplanes, washing floors, or dancing at a strip club—this picture book is the first to depict a sex-worker parent. Introducing the idea of bodily labor, it provides an expanded notion of working mothers and challenges the idea that only some jobs result in good parenting. Instead, we're reminded that, while every mama's work looks different, every mama works to make their baby's world better.

This is the mothering book I’ve always dreamed of! How Mamas Love shifts our narrow definition of what a mother is, what a mother does, what a mother looks like, and what caring for our babies looks like.

This version of "the talk" emphasizes that sexuality is your birthright, and it develops over a lifetime.
