June 28th @ 7PM: Join us for an author talk with Abigail Tucker, a journalist, young mother, and New York Times bestselling author. Ms. Tucker is also a graduate of Ridgefield High School and Harvard College. She now writes for Smithsonian Magazine. Her new title, Mom Genes, published by Simon & Schuster, explores the biology and psychology of motherhood. Part scientific odyssey and part memoir, Mom Genes weaves the latest research with Abigail Tucker’s personal experiences to create a delightful, surprising, and often poignant portrait of motherhood.
“Mom Genes reveals the hard science behind a mother’s tenderest maternal impulses, tackling questions such as whether a new mom’s brain ever really bounces back, why mothers are destined to mimic their own moms (or not), and how maternal aggression makes females the world’s most formidable creatures…It’s vital reading for anyone who has ever wondered what rocks the hand that rocks the cradle.” Julie Lythcott-Haims
