In celebration of Women’s History Month, Polly sat down with Googler, Stacey Kulongowski, for a fireside chat around the joys and challenges of motherhood in her latest fiction short stories book, Look How Happy I’m Making You. Polly shares an excerpt from one of the stories in the book and takes us through her own experiences of motherhood that inspired her to write these stories. Witty, empathetic, and precisely observe*d, Look How Happy I’m Making You,* offers the rare, honest portrayal of pregnancy and new motherhood in a culture obsessed with women’s most intimate choices.
