Midmorning: Writer Peggy Orenstein and photographer David Pluth

Posted at 7:54 AM on March 2, 2007 by Bill Wareham

After she spent years avoiding motherhood, and then coping with breast cancer, writer Peggy Orenstein decided to have a child. At 9 a.m., Orenstein joins Kerri Miller to discuss her latest book, which chronicles the next, difficult hurdle she faced: infertility. Orenstein's book is Waiting for Daisy. She's a contributing writer for the New York Times Magazine and the author of Schoolgirls: Young Women, Self-Esteem and the Confidence Gap.

At 10 a.m, Kerri's guest is National Geographic photographer David Pluth, who says tourism can save conflict-ridden countries like Uganda. Pluth talks about his experiences documenting the wilderness and the people who live in and around wild places in Africa and around the world.
