Gabrielle Glaser, American Baby: A Mother, a Child, and the Shadow History of Adoption
In Conversation with Holly Firfer, CNN Journalist
ZOOM Webinar + Q & A
In 1961, sixteen-year-old Margaret Erle fell in love and became pregnant. Despite Margaret’s intentions to marry her child’s father and her desperation to keep her baby boy, Margaret was coerced into signing away her parental rights. After only two brief visits, Margaret’s son vanished into an adoption agency’s hold and out of Margaret’s reach for decades to come. In AMERICAN BABY: A Mother, a Child, and the Shadow History of Adoption (Viking; On Sale: June 2, 2020; 9780735224681), New York Times bestselling author and journalist Gabrielle Glaser explores the untold story of a predatory, secret adoption system in postwar America through the dual stories of Margaret and the son she never intended to give up.
