Book Talk: “The Anxious Generation,” by Jonathan Haidt

Sarah Gallagher Trombley, former Snapchat executive, author and digital parenting consultant, will join us at the Perrot Library on Monday, September 9th, from 7 to 8 pm in the Program Room, Radcliffe Building, for a book club style discussion of Jonathan Haidt’s The Anxious Generation. This popular book suggests that as a society, we have been overprotecting our children in the real world while underprotecting them in the virtual world. Sarah will lead us in a well-rounded discussion of the main theories and suggested solutions put forth in this book.
