ALISON GOPNIK at Town Hall
Co-presented with TOWN HALL CIVICS Series. One of the world’s leading child psychologists, the author of The Philosophical Baby and coauthor of The Scientist in the Crib, Alison Gopnik is here tonight with her newest, The Gardener and the Carpenter: What the New Science of Child Development Tells Us About the Relationship Between Parents and Children (Farrar, Straus & Giroux). “What a relief to find a book that takes a stand against the practice of ‘helicopter parenting’ so prevalent today . . . [The Gardener and the Carpenter] not only dispels the myth of a single best model for good parenting but also backs up its proposals with real-life examples and research studies . . . This book will provide helpful inspiration for parents and may prompt some to rethink their strategies.” —Publishers Weekly. $5 tickets are available at the door or in advance via www.townhallseattle.org (1.888.377.4510). Town Hall Seattle is at 1119 Eighth Avenue (at Seneca).
