Hope Edelman is the author of five nonfiction books: the international bestseller Motherless Daughters (1994), which was translated into seven languages; Letters from Motherless Daughters (1995), an edited collection of letters from readers; Mother of My Mother (1999), which looks at the depth and influence of the grandmother-granddaughter relationship; Motherless Mothers (2006), about the experience of being a mother when you don't have one; and The Possibility of Everything (2009), her first book-length memoir, set in Topanga Canyon, California, and Belize. (I interviewed Hope about The Possibility of Everything here at Mother Words in January.)
Bonnie J. Rough is the author of the new memoir Carrier: Untangling the Danger in My DNA (2010). Her writing has appeared in several anthologies and many periodicals, including The New York Times, The Sun, and The Iowa Review. A former Minneapolis resident, Rough has taught at The Loft Literary Center. (You can read my recent interview with Bonnie here.)
