Booth Girls: Pregnancy, Adoption, and the Secrets We Kept
From multiple generations and perspectives, this 2022 Minnesota Book Award Finalist examines contested motherhood, focusing on the experiences of single pregnant women–including Heikkila’s mother–at Salvation Army’s Booth Memorial Hospital, a home for “unwed mothers” in St. Paul.

Sponsored by Douglas County Library, Thorson Memorial Library, Fergus Falls Public Library, Perham Area Library, and Viking Library System. This project was funded in part or in whole with monies from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage fund.
