Niobe Way - Portland Public Library

Niobe Way's new book Deep Secrets has been getting a lot of press attention, and she's live in Portland on October 20th!

( ** It would be so interesting to have a follow conversation about ways that FSP allows boys friendships to develop or ways that cultural constraints still make it difficult for boys in their preteen years- Maya, maybe a sexism and stereotypes forum sometime?)

The Maine Boys Network (educational group affiliated with Boys to Men) is co-hosting an exciting event here in Portland. Come join author and NYU professor of Applied Psychology, Niobe Way, most recently featured in the New York Times, to learn about ground breaking findings that will challenge long-held stereotypes about boys and men.

Thursday, October 20th, 7-9pm  ~  Portland Public Library

The presentation will be followed by a question and answer period with author Niobe Way.

Please RSVP by October 14 as space is limited

Admission is free with donations accepted at the door

Hosted by Boys to Men, Colby College, Great Schools Partnership, Maine Boys Network
and the Portland Public Library

I was glad to see that this lecture is being offered, and I and at least one friend have already registered! This will be nice to couple with Michael Thompson's spring P4P lecture.

In a constant attempt to be a compassionate and prepared Mom,
