About Cindy Hudson
Cindy Hudson founded her first mother-daughter book club in 2000, with her daughter Madeleine, and another in 2003 with her daughter Catherine. After realizing how few resources were available to such clubs, she started the Mother/Daughter Book Club blog and wrote Book by Book: The Complete Guide to Creating Mother-Daughter Book Clubs.
