Dear ARM Members and Friends,

As you are no doubt aware I am editing an encyclopedia on motherhood for Sage Press (3 volumes, 700 entries), scheduled for publication April 2010.

As a result of last minute changes several entries are in need of contributors.

PLEASE SEE LIST BELOW. If you are interested please contact at your earliest convenience (she will provide full information and instructions).

Thanks so much


Andrea O'Reilly
