Donation of Jean Paton Book Royalties to the AAC and CUB

jean jacket 1Jean Paton, and the Struggle to Reform American Adoption by E Wayne Carp is a must-read for anyone working in the adoptee rights movement today.  Jean is where we came from.  I’ll be talking about Jean next week at Florida State on a panel at the Alliance for the Study of Adoption and Culture  conference with Professor Carp and Professor Elizabeth Samuels and Professor  Marianne Novy.

The University of Michigan Press, publisher of the book, is currently offering a 30% discount.  Here is a message from Professor Carp regarding the discount::

I am donating 10 percent of the royalties of my book, Jean Paton and the Struggle to Reform American Adoption, to the American Adoption Congress and another 10 percent to Concerned United Birthparents. Jean was instrumental in creating both organization and  consequently it made sense that I donate to them.  But even more important, as you will read in my book, Jean hated for people to make money off the backs of adopted people and birthmothers, and it is that sentiment that fueled my decision.
