An Evening with Jennifer Senior, All Joy and No Fun Coming to Atlanta History Center April 23rd!


Thousands of books have examined the effects of parents on their children. In All Joy and No Fun award-winning journalist Jennifer Senior now asks: what are the effects of children on their parents? Senior tackles this question, isolating and analyzing the many ways in which children reshape their parents' lives, whether it's their marriages, their jobs, their habits, their hobbies, their friendships, or their internal senses of self. She argues that changes in the last half century have radically altered the roles of today's mothers and fathers, making their mandates at once more complex and far less clear.

She draws upon multi-disciplinary research to discuss the timeless strains of parenting as well as the those that are brand new. As an active, modern parent, I am sure this is a subject matter with which you are very familiar!

I encourage you to attend and to share this lecture with you friends and readers. It will be held at the Atlanta History Center on Wednesday, April 23rd, at 8:00 pm. Admission is inexpensive at $10 for nonmembers, $5 for members, and free for AHC insiders.  Guests to the lecture receive 25% off of the featured book.
