My Two Mothers by Donna Meehan

Last year, Donna Meehan’s story ‘My Two Mothers’ was published in our 2020 anthology, The Swimmer and other stories of life:

‘My Two Mothers’, written and read by Donna Meehan.

In 2000, Donna published a memoir It is no secret: the story of a stolen generation childNine years later, she also spoke about what it was like to be separated from her biological mother, Beatrice, when Donna was only five and a half years old. You can view that video, along with photographs of her early life, in the Stolen Generations’ Testimonies Project.

Donna’s short story, ‘My Two Mothers’, was published last year in our 2020 Stories of Life anthology, The Swimmer and other stories of life. It’s a very short story, but powerful, and evocative.

If you were moved by Donna’s story, why not pick up a copy of  our 2020 anthology, The Swimmer and other stories of life, where Donna’s story above was published.
