Title

You Belong to Us: One Baby, Two Sets of Parents

Abstract

Bowling Green author Molly McCaffrey was the speaker in the Kentucky Live! series on November 19, 2015 at Barnes & Noble Bookstore. She talked about and read from her newest book You Belong to Us: One Baby, Two Sets of Parents, a memoir which tells the story of her experience meeting her biological family just after her thirtieth birthday.

The book follows more than a decade in the lives of her unconventional family and poses the question: do we belong to the people with whom we share our blood or to those who raise us? McCaffrey’s other books include How to Survive Graduate School & Other Disasters, a book of short stories published in 2011, and Commutability: Stories About the Journey from Here to There which she co-edited with David Bell in 2010.
