A Conversation With Ann Fessler
In this conversation, Kevin Haebeom Vollmers interviews Ann Fessler. Ann is a faculty member at the Rhode Island School of Design, author of The Girls Who Went Away: The Hidden History of Women Who Surrendered Children for Adoption in the Decades Before Roe v. Wade, and she is the filmmaker behind A Girl Like Her.
Some of the questions asked:
- How did you become interested in adoption as a subject, in particular women who surrendered their children during the Baby Scoop Era?
- Why do you think it’s important, especially for adoptees, to know this part of U.S. history? Broadly speaking, why is it important for all to know this history?
- What are your thoughts on adoption attorneys?
Ann also makes a major announcement about A Girl Like Her in relation to South Korea.
