Books Inc. Opera prouldy presents Christine Henneberg for a reading from her book Boundless!

In Boundlessrespected writer and physician Christine Henneberg takes on the most polarizing and provocative issue of our time: What does it mean to choose-or choose not-to have a child, and what does it mean when that choice isn't yours to make? As a young physician in training, Henneberg imagines deliberately shaping her life by her choices. But when she finds herself pregnant and performing late-term abortions, she is forced to reckon with the hardest questions: What is the source of her agency and the root of her ambition? What does it mean to make a "good" choice when so little is under her control? And how can she maintain her boundaries in a world of boundless love-the world of motherhood? Her answers, bravely and beautifully articulated, lie at the heart of this provocative, tender, deeply empathic memoir.

With a courageous, unflinching voice and a singular perspective from the abortion frontlines, Boundless raises radical and essential questions about boundaries, bodies, and the meaning of choice.


Christine Henneberg is a writer and a practicing physician. She earned a BA in English/Creative Writing from Pomona College and an MD and MS in health and medical sciences from the UC Berkeley - UCSF Joint Medical Program. She lives in California.
