“Childfree By Choice: The Movement Redefining Family and Creating a new Age of independence”

Dr. Amy Blackstone, childfree woman, co-creator of the blog we’re {not} having a baby!, and nationally recognized expert on the childfree choice, comes a definitive investigation into the history and current growing movement of adults choosing to forgo parenthood: what it means for our society, economy, environment, perceived gender roles, and legacies, and how understanding and supporting all types of families can lead to positive outcomes for parents, non-parents, and children alike.

Books will be available for purchase.

Dr. Amy Blackstone is a professor in Sociology and the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center at the University of Maine, where she studies childlessness and the childfree choice, workplace harassment, and civic engagement.
