In-store book-signing: BE PREGNANT by Eugenia Viti

Local author and illutrator Eugenia Viti will be stopping by Women & Children First at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 15 to sign copies of her new book, Be Pregnant: An Illustrated Companion for Moms-to-Be. 

This funny, relatable, and empathetic book for expectant parents shows that everyone knows what to expect during pregnancy . . . or do they?

Full of vibrant illustrations, annotated diagrams, and first-hand accounts, Be Pregnant is a fun and comforting companion for this exciting (and highly anticipatory!) time in a pregnant person’s life. Eugenia Viti’s charming mix of insider info and humor provide a much-needed laugh about:

  • Strangers trying to touch your belly.
  • Feelings of inadequacy about stroller prices.
  • The all-powerful birth plan.

With quirky yet universal anecdotes, personal "Something That May Happen . . ." sections, and an inclusive illustration program welcoming all moms, Be Pregnant is the perfect gift for an expecting friend or baby shower. 

Eugenia Viti is a writer, illustrator, comic artist, and cartoonist who lives in Chicago with her husband and toddler. She’s a regular contributor to The New Yorker; her comics and cartoons also appear in the American Bystander, The Nib, McSweeney’s, Physics World Adbusters, and others.
