April 27, 2022
Accomplished author, psychotherapist, executive coach and newspaper columnist, Meg Stafford, announces the public release of her second book: Who Will Accompany You? My Mother-Daughter Journeys Far from Home and Close to the Heart. Award-winning memoirist Meg Stafford has an adventurous spirit, and this time she takes us along for the ride. When her daughters venture into terra incognita – one of them meditating in the Himalayas and the other providing unarmed protection in the Colombian countryside – Stafford decides to go too. In the process, she reflects on her own lifetime of wanderlust and what it means for a parent to love and let go. Generous, insightful, and deeply funny, Stafford is the ideal tour guide for a journey as big as the world and as intimate as the human heart.

LITTLETON — Few mothers would allow their young daughters to work in war-torn countries and travel thousands of miles away as teenagers, but Meg Stafford is no ordinary mom.
Her only stipulation? She comes with them.
The Littleton resident chronicled the long journeys she and her two daughters, Kate and Gale, took in her memoir, “Who Will Accompany You?: My Mother-Daughter Journeys Far From Home and Close to the Heart,” published in January. Incorporating her own writing, years after her trips, with her daughters’ diary entries and old emails allowed Stafford to compare the perspectives of her children with her own experience while abroad.

Littleton — After enduring two years of chemotherapy, mastectomy, radiation and reconstructive surgery, Meg Stafford’s oncologist asked whether she felt able to resume her life.
“I never stopped living it,” was Stafford’s response.
That outlook is a central theme of “Topic of Cancer: Riding the Waves of the Big C,” a lively account that evolved from an e-mail distribution list Stafford maintained to inform family and friends about her treatment, the choices she made and the emotional ups and downs accompanying them.
