Author Event w/ Julie Lythcott-Haims of Real American and How to Raise an Adult

March 3, 2018
2:00 pm
Burlingame Main Library

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.
