Want to know who’s coming to town?
Here are a few upcoming author visits worth checking out:
Madeline Levine, March 10: If you’re looking for a little parenting advice, Levine is a renowned psychologist and author of one of my favorite “How do I do this?” books, “The Price of Privilege.” She’ll be in Winnetka on March 10 to talk about “the skills that children need to succeed in a tumultuous future: adaptability, mental agility, curiosity, collaboration, tolerance for failure, resilience, and optimism. Most important, Levine offers day-to-day solutions parents can use to raise kids who are prepared, enthusiastic, and ready to face an unknown future with confidence and optimism.”
Jeff Fleischer, March 12: Anyone interested in a better understanding of elections? Fleischer will be on hand this Thursday at the Book Cellar in Lincoln Square to talk “About Votes of Confidence: A Young Person’s Guide to American Elections: Votes of Confidence: A Young Person’s Guide to American Elections gives an in-depth introduction to the electoral college, the history of debates, political parties, how to get involved even if you’re not old enough to vote, and more in conversational, engaging prose. The revised edition includes information on the 2016 and 2018 elections, and Kirkus called it “a solid and timely foundation.” This is a must-read for any teen who wants to be an engaged and informed citizen.”
Looking for a book suggestion? I just finished up “Weather” by Jenny Offill. You can check it out here.
