Belle Boggs: The Art of Waiting

 |  WUNC-TV Bookwatch  | WUNC-TV Bookwatch

Belle Boggs’s “The Art of Waiting” eloquently recounts her realization that she might never be able to conceive. As she searches for signs that she is not alone, Boggs also explores other aspects of fertility and infertility: the financial and legal complications that accompany alternative means of family making and the many possible roads to making a life and making a family. Boggs directs NC State’s MFA in Creative Writing Program.
