Hooks Book Events Presents an Evening Discussion with Authors Po Bronson, Ashley Merryman and Dan Pink
Tuesday, September 8, 2009 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
Tuesday, September 8th , 8:00 - 10:00 p.m.
The Avalon Theater
Copies of NURTURESHOCK will be available for sale and signing after the conversation.
Arrival Time Starts at 7:30 PM
New York Times bestselling author Dan Pink will interview
Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman about their new book, NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children
"NURTURESHOCK is one of the most important books you will read this year," says Pink, noting Bronson and his co-author Ashley Merryman move parenting out of the realm of folklore and into the realm of science and reveal what decades of studies teach us about the complexities of raising, happy, healthy, self-motivated kids. "As a writer, I was impressed by the prodigious research and keen analysis. As a father, I was consumed with taking notes and exhilarated by all I learned."
Nothing like a parenting manual, the authors' work is an insightful exploration of themes and issues that transcend children's (and adults') lives.
Po Bronson is the author of NurtureShock, a new book to be published in September by Twelve. He has also built a career both as a successful novelist and as a prominent writer of narrative nonfiction. He has published five books, and he has written for television, magazines, and newspapers, including Time, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, and for National Public Radio's Morning Edition.
He has also lectured to corporations, universities, and associations around the world on economic transformation and business strategy, and has analyzed commercial and social trends for dozens of television and radio programs.
We look forward to seeing you at this exciting event!
