Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Book Giveaway: Global Mom


Melissa Dalton-Bradford is giving away one copy of her recently-released memoir, Global Mom: Eight Countries, Sixteen Addresses, Five Languages, One Family.

From the press release:

With her husband and their four children, Melissa Dalton-Bradford spent years country-hopping: from Norway’s Northern Lights and the City of Light in Paris, to the speed of light of the Autobahn in Munich, to the deep tropics of Southeast Asia and the elevations of the Swiss Alps.

This multicultural tale includes giving birth in a chateau in Versailles, singing jazz on Norwegian TV, living on an island in a fjord, judging an Indonesian beauty contest, navigating the labyrinth of French bureaucracy and the traffic patterns of Singapore, and sitting around a big pine table where the whole family learns languages, cultures, cuisines, and how to love this complex and diverse world and, most importantly, each other.

In addition to telling grand stories of extraordinary adventures, Global Mom also serves as a wonderful guidebook for parents traveling internationally with children.
