HeLa lives...

I found the science fascinating, the ethical issues thought provoking, but the story of Henrietta's family and her daughter Deborah's search to know her mother were what resonated with me most.

Tiger Mama

We had a pretty rousing discussion at our book club. Many did not like or relate to her tactics but her story caused a lot of inward reflection on our own "Western" parenting styles.

Culture shapes parenting

This is a really great read for anyone in the midst of parenting. By profiling many cultures and their approach to raising children it allows you to step back and consider that there is not always a "right way" to raise your kids. We are all heavily influenced by the expectations of the society around us when it comes to our own parenting styles. I think this book would likely spark discussion among other mothers.

Controlling the game....

We had a great discussion about male friendships, competitiveness, control of one's talents and of other people. This was a good book for an interesting conversation...

The Immigrant's Double Life

This is a fascinating read loosely based on the author's life experience as an immigrant trying to stay alive in the U.S. and make her own American dream a reality. This is an addictive story and will likely spark many points of discussion your book club.
