Giveaway Week Day 2: What My Mother Gave Me

Put your worries aside, yesterday was no joke.  It really is Giveaway Week here at Algonquin!  We’re continuing the series with a Happy Pub Day giveaway…

What My Mother Gave Me

edited by Elizabeth Benedict

As Elizabeth Benedict writes in her introduction to this collection, “we may not know for quite some time which presents will matter the most.” But with these thirty-one contributors weighing in on the subject, we can see the vast array of objects and emotions we cherish from our complex and complicated relationships with our mothers:

Mary Gordon’s trip on the Circle Line around Manhattan with her mother.

Joyce Carol Oates’ quilt from her mother.

Dahlia Lithwick’s gardening skills learned from her mother.

Caroline Leavitt’s family photograph handed down from her mother.

And so many more. Check out the What My Mother Gave Me tumblr daily for a look at these gifts that mattered most — and share your own photo and story. Because as this moving collection of essays shows us, every gift, no matter how modest, tells the story of a powerful bond.
