Celebrating all the Mother figures in our lives

The mother figures in our lives are as diverse as the reasons there are for celebrating them and we wish all of you a wonderful day of recognition and appreciation.

A mother is the one who fills your heart in the first place

Amy Tan, Saving Fish From Drowning

From our friends at Penguin Books Australia, we bring you a very special Mother’s Day gift. Sit back, relax and enjoy these wonderful videos from eight female authors who speak about mothers, how they write about mothers, and what it means to them to be a mother.

The line-up includes Glennon Doyle, Kathy Lette, Katherine Scholes, Minnie Darke, Lisa Ireland, The Essentialists, Rose Hartley and Kirsten Alexander.

Humourous, chilling, deeply touching, thoughtful or thrilling, we have put together a list of books that touch on the themes of motherhood and family but are also just really great reads. Enjoy!
