Donation of Jean Paton Book Royalties to the AAC and CUB

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 organizations 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.

To purchase the book at a 30 percent discount: enter PATON in the shopping cart box labeled Enter Promotion Code. This offer is only available through the University of Michigan Press website and , not available in bookstores.

Offer Expires April 30, 2014.
