Book Circles

Academic Mamas Book Circle: To Have and To Hold

Do you find it difficult balancing all of your varied roles? Join Dr. Jennifer Weaver (Associate Professor in the department of Psychological Science), and Elizabeth Barnes (SL Faculty Associate for the CTL and Lecturer in the English Department) to meet other Academic Mamas struggling to find balance and joy. The goal of the book circle is to form a community of mothers to support one another in the complicated process of being a professional and a parent. Please join us on the last Tuesday of each month from 12:00-12:45 (via Zoom) to read and discuss:  To Have And To Hold Motherhood, Marriage, and the Modern Dilemma By Molly Millwood, PhD.
