Recently we had the pleasure of spending a sunny Spring morning with author Angela Garbes in Fort Greene Park where we discussed her new book, Essential Labor, being a mom in the midst of a pandemic and so much more! Garbes second book "explores assumptions about care, work, and deservedness, offering a deeply personal and rigorously reported look at what mothering is, and can be. A first-generation Filipina American, Garbes shares the perspective of her family's complicated relationship to care work, placing mothering in a global context—the invisible economic engine that has been historically demanded of women of color."
We are so excited to share this interview with you! You can purchase Angela's book 'Essential Labor' here!
