Author Event w/ Julie Lythcott-Haims of Real American and How to Raise an Adult
Join us for an event with New York Times-bestselling author and former Stanford dean Julie Lythcott-Haims! In striking prose, her new memoir Real American illustrates her experience with American racism and her journey toward self-acceptance. Julie is a stirring speaker and this should be an interesting discussion on race in America. The New York Times described it as "important and inherent and instructive to understanding how a culture of whiteness can affect a person of color."
Books will be available from Books Inc. at the event.
