20. In a Perfect World: Good Moms and Bad Days

October 1, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Jessamine Chan’s explosive debut novel, The School for Good Mothers, takes a mother’s bad day to the dystopian extreme. Rattled by a series of disappointments and failures, Frida has a lapse in judgement that threatens to take away the only thing keeping her life together – her daughter, unless she can prove herself redeemable. Join Jessamine and Ying Lee for a conversation about this page-turning novel on mass surveillance, the impossible expectations of motherhood, and real-world threats to women’s autonomy. 

We are thankful for the patronage of Bespoke Skin MD for Jessamine Chan.

11:00am – 12:00pm EDT
