In ‘One Good Egg,’ Suzy Becker sketches family’s birth

Suzy Becker’s illustrated memoir, “One Good Egg,” chronicles her attempt to have a baby via fertility treatment (and sperm donation from a close male friend). Originally a cartoonist, Becker — who reads at 7 p.m. Monday at Brookline Booksmith — promises that her reading will include visual aids.

The cartoons, she says, “have to be there for the counterpoint and the humor.” Becker ordinarily uses PowerPoint so that the images can accompany her reading, but this is a resourceful author: She’s done everything “from holding up foam-core blowups” to handing out copies of her books so the audience can see the cartoons.
