Delaware author shares compelling observation on poverty, teenage pregnancy in new book
BEAR, Del. — Author Kim Fisher-Crider announces the nationwide release of her eye-opening new book, “Write Until God Ends the Story — The Consequences of Teen Pregnancy and Parenting: The Five Generations Before Me.”
In “Write Until God Ends the Story,” the author explores various social disparities, including her own, acknowledging that adolescent pregnancies do not cause poverty, but poverty is a number one factor that causes an adolescent pregnancy. The book shares stories of teen and adolescent parents and seeks to find out how this population segment of a community can escape the stigma of teen pregnancy and teen parenting in one’s lifetime.
“Write Until God Ends the Story” demonstrates the many faces, causes and effects of poverty associated with being a single and teenage parent — child abuse, child neglect, community problems, conflict and crime — and concludes that a family lineage of poverty can last as long as life and as long as 100 years, equating to 10 generations.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
