My Mama approached me, next in line for those who wanted a signed copy of The Labor of Care. Her hands were full. She had bought four copies of the book. With a grin on her face, she said, “I’m giving some to my friends.” My biggest fan. Little did she know, I was her biggest fan. I breathed in a sigh of relief, happy to know that she was so proud of me. I was proud of myself.

It was almost a week ago that The Labor of Care and A Nation on the Line by Jan Padios was launched in San Francisco! And I’m still on a high. It was a definitive moment for me as an author, scholar, mother, daughter, and kasama. All of my worlds collided in this beautiful way. Here’s a beautiful collage of the people who took pictures!
