“NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children,” An Evening with NY Times Bestselling Author Po Bronson
Thursday, April 29th, 7-8:30 p.m.

Menlo-Atherton Performing Art Center (PAC) Cafeteria, 555 Middlefield Road, Atherton

Po Bronson brilliantly analyzes the current research on child-rearing and developmental psychology to bring new insight into modern parenting. NurtureShock provides a revolutionary new perspective on childhood that upends a library’s worth of conventional wisdom. Po ’s writing about children has been honored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Council on Contemporary Families.

Kepler’s Books will sponsor sales of NurtureShock; cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted. Plan to pick up a signed copy!

“NurtureShock is one of the most important books you will read this year. As a writer, I was impressed with the prodigious research and keen analysis.”

--Daniel H. Pink, author of A Whole New Mind
