YOUR TURN: HOW TO BE AN ADULT A book talk by Julie Lythcott-Haims, Sunday October 24, 1:00pm – 2:30pm

We are pleased to welcome back Julie Lythcott-Haims to UUCPA for a live Zoom talk on her new book, YOUR TURN: How to be an adult, a groundbreakingly frank guide to growing up. Filled with great stories, she offers a guide for anyone wanting to live their best adult life. She speaks directly to the heart and mind of people coming into adulthood offering compassion, personal experience and practical strategies for living a more authentic adulthood. While her talk will focus on young adults, it is also deeply meaningful to all who love them. She will read select passages from her book, after which there will be a q & a session. Our UUCPA bookstore has copies of her book that Julie has graciously signed.
