Kelley Benham French won a Pulitzer for “Never Let Go,” this three-part series on the birth of her daughter Juniper, a micro-preemie born at 23w6d gestation. I just finished her memoir, Juniper: The Girl Who Was Born Too Soon, and was able to track down this series (which became bones of the book).
1. Part One: Lost and Found — A daughter is born four months too soon
2. Part Two: The Zero Zone — Juniper’s first few weeks
3. Part Three: Baby’s Breath — Miracles, in little pieces
