Building a Woman
by Deborah Meltvedt
Scheduled Release Date: Feb 16, 2021
The collection of poems Building a Woman is a trajectory of one life from girlhood to womanhood with all the complications of family, the joy of friends, grief and loss and ultimately finding lasting love. It weaves in experiences of growing up as a doctor’s doctor in California in the 1960s and 70s and the cultural expectations of women (and their reproductive lives) in the past and still today. Building a Woman also gives tribute to how we often find worth within prescribed family lives, but maybe more so through long lasting women friendships.
Her words ring out like bells and call to us like a friend, urging us to come visit; stay a while; enjoy. —Anara Guard, author of Hand on My Heart
