Julie Lythcott-Haims roots for humans. Humans need agency in order to make their way forward; Julie is deeply interested in what impedes us. She is the New York Times best-selling author of How to Raise an Adult, an anti-helicopter parenting manifesto which gave rise to one of the top TED Talks of 2016, which now has more than 4 million views. Her second book is the critically acclaimed and award-winning prose poetry memoir Real American, which illustrates her experience with racism and her journey toward self-acceptance. A third book on how to be an adult, for young adults, is forthcoming. She is a former corporate lawyer and Stanford dean, and she holds a B.A. from Stanford, a J.D. from Harvard, and an M.F.A. in writing from California College of the Arts. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her partner of more than 30 years, their two teenagers and her mother.
A book signing will follow the lecture. Books will be available for sale from Mystery Lovers Bookshop.

"This book is the antidote to helicopter parenting. Lythcott-Haims' research, combined with a decade of experience as a Stanford dean, makes for some important insights into the state of parenting in America today." – San Francisco Chronicle
