Human Library - Mother of Eight book



On Saturday, January 25, you can sign-out Mother of Eight book Véronique Bergeron for a one-on-one conversation at the Human Library.


Véronique will be on the shelf at the Orleans branch of the Ottawa Public Library between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Here, Véronique describes the start of her large family. She had just finished her first year of law school when that little blue line appeared on the home pregnancy test.





Véronique says having a large family can mean saying no to certain things, such as dance lessons, or an overseas vacation. Though Véronique adds a large family also offers her kids other opportunities.



Véronique reveals the secret to managing the controlled chaos of her household.
