Don’t miss our first lecture of the 2023-24 season! Hear from Emily Oster, CEO of ParentData and award-winning economist, who is on a mission to disprove conventional wisdom and debunk myths around pregnancy, early childhood and the elementary years.

In her books Expecting Better, Cribsheet and The Family Firm, Emily analyzes the data behind choices in pregnancy and parenting, providing a framework to facilitate better decision making and address the logistical challenges of expecting and parenting.

A member of the exclusive 2022 Time 100 Most Influential People club, Emily also writes the popular newsletter, ParentData. Her next book, The Unexpected, hits shelves April 2024.

Doors open at 7:00 pm, and the first 45 attendees get a free copy of one of Emily’s books. Social time will be followed by a book signing, with the program beginning promptly at 8:00 pm, followed by a Q&A.

Bring a friend ($10 fee for non-members)!

We look forward to seeing you there!

Appy Bubna and Ashley Canning, Programs Directors
