Screening and discussion of new film on childfree choice to be held February 1
The screening and discussion will take place on Friday, February 1 at 3:00 pm in Wells Conference Center on the University of Maine campus. The public is invited, as are all faculty, students, and staff.
To Kid or Not to Kid, from award-winning director of the New York Times Critics’ Pick Musicwood, aims to dispel the myth that living childfree is weird, selfish or somehow wrong. In a world where women are threatened for speaking openly about living childfree, two women, from different generations, search for ways to support each other in making the decision to live without kids.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A and panel discussion with filmmaker Maxine Trump, University of Maine professor and author of the forthcoming book Childfree by Choice Amy Blackstone, Executive Director of Mabel Wadsworth Center Andrea Irwin, and host of the popular Facebook page The Childfree Choice Jessica Wade.
A reception with refreshments and a cash bar will follow. Members of the public are welcome. More information can be found at https://www.facebook.com/events/227785128144412/.
