Mother’s Day is this Sunday — which you surely know and have prepared for, in whatever way is appropriate for your needs — and in that vein, we present a few author interviews from either end of that relationship.

Melinda Gates’s new book, The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes The World, may not specifically be about motherhood.

But child-rearing issues and the division of this labor certainly comes up in both the book and in her conversation with Michel Martin.

Listen to her discuss having her husband, Bill (of Microsoft fame), take over school-dropoff duties, or read it on NPR’s website.

NPR also chatted with an author whose book looks at the mother-child bond from the latter’s perspective.

Dustin Lance Black’s memoir, Mama's Boy, discusses how he and his mother overcame obstacles — both those they faced individually and jointly — and their differences.

You can listen to or read his interview with Lulu Garcia-Navarro on NPR’s website as well.
