In the era of Facebook and Twitter, the details of everyone’s life are now fodder for public consumption—but Salt Lake City’s own Heather Armstrong was there before most. The pioneering “mommy blogger” took her personal blog Dooce.com and turned it into a cathartic meeting place for parents facing every kind of struggle.

Armstrong addresses a very specific kind of struggle in her new memoir, It Sucked and Then I Cried: How I Had a Baby, a Breakdown, and a Much Needed Margarita. Even What to Expect When You’re Expecting couldn’t prepare the author for the trials and tribulations of pregnancy—and the even more unexpected trials of postpartum depression. With her trademark irreverence, she turns the dark moments—and minor and major embarrassments—into a lively account of coming out on the other side with even stronger ties to her family. Join her for a reading this week.
