"While many of us know the experience of having biological sisters, there is another kind of sisterhood to be discovered. In gathering to discuss books, we sometimes glimpse a deeper truth, our hearts are the same, we are sisters. An experience of sisterhood has a way of lightening every load we carry. Well-Read Mom celebrates all kinds of sisterhood this year."
- Marcie Stokman, Founder of Well-Read Mom
We want all women who participate in Well-Read Mom (WRM) to enjoy our beautiful materials.*
When you join WRM, you’re not just purchasing a product, you’re joining and supporting a movement of women who want to read more and read well.
