How do you care for someone else without losing yourself in the process?

A new 94-page collection from The Vault tackles the feelings we have surrounding motherhood. In On Mothering, 22 diverse contributors tackle their feelings about the most universal of human experiences. The stories in the collection are for and by mothers, future mothers, but also atypical caregivers like doulas and pet moms. It is for anyone who has ever had a mother; for parents who have birthed or raised children; for anyone who has ever questioned their relationship to care, emotional labour, or sacrifice in the name of love.

Plus, the launch of the collection will kick off with a special storytelling event featuring stories from Shedoesthecity’s Editor-in-Chief Jen McNeely, Sheila Sampath, Fauzia Asim, Shulamit Sappire, Sarah Keast and more. Hosted by With/out Pretend, On Mothering: A Night of Storytelling takes place on July 10 starting at 7 p.m. at Tranzac Club (292 Brunswick Ave). Grab tickets here.
