      EVENT DETAILS
      Catherine Lee Brinkley Memorial Lecture Series: Meg Jay

      Meg Jay is a clinical psychologist and a narrative nonfiction writer. In her books, she weaves the latest research with what she hears everyday: the behind-closed-doors stories of real people. In Supernormal, Dr. Jay reveals the secret world of the family hero: those who soar to unexpected heights after childhood adversity. Drawing on two decades of work with clients and students, Dr. Jay tells the tale of “the strong ones” in troubled families and communities, everyday superheroes who have made a life out of dodging bullets and leaping over obstacles, even as they hide in plain sight as doctors, artists, entrepreneurs, lawyers, parents, activists, teachers, students and more. Taking us deep into their hearts and minds, she explores not only “How do they do it?” but also “How does it feel?” Free and Open to the public. Visit Slover Library for our evening reception, lecture, Q&A, and book signing.   FAQs   What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? Parking is available at MacArthur Center, city parking garages, or on-street metered parking. You can also take the TIDE to the MacArthur Station stop, and the library is located across the street.
