A Let's Talk About It series

Series: The Way We Were, The Way We Are: Seasons in the Contemporary American Family

Family life encompasses enduring seasons that form a cycle: growing up, breaking away or breaking down, making choices, looking back, surviving. Such categories may have little to do with age, economic status, or geographical location. But their commonality in American life, as reflected in these books, will challenge readers to define the meaning of “family” today and, in so doing, to discover something of themselves.

Dates: January 30, February 27, March 27, April 24, and May 29, 2019
