Episode 34 of Through the Gates aired via SoundCloud and iTunes Monday, Oct. 16
This week, Through the Gates host Jim Shanahan speaks with Thomas and Kelley French, both acclaimed journalists and Professors of Practice at the Media School. Their recently published memoir, “Juniper: The Girl Who Was Born Too Soon,” has fast become an important work for parents navigating similar circumstances and for medical professionals seeking to understand the experience of parents of premature children.
Despite the emotional turmoil the Frenches endured, their message is not a dark one. Thomas describes the days following Juniper’s birth as “the most transcendent few months of our lives, watching her edge into consciousness.” The book is available online and at major literary retailers nationwide.
