  2. Catherine Lee Brinkley Memorial Lecture Series: Meg Jay

    November 21, 2019, 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM @ Slover Library

    The Catherine Brinkley Memorial Lecture series returns to Slover Library for a second year, bringing award-winning authors to discuss their books for this year’s theme: Resilience. Our second lecture features Dr. Meg Jay, author of "Supernormal: The Untold Story of Adversity and Resilience". 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?”
