Flash Count Diary: Darcey Steinke, in conversation with Tara Parker-Pope
Thursday, November 14
This groundbreaking feminist memoir, which Maggie Nelson (The Argonauts) called “an instant classic” is a highly personal exploration of “the change” (aka menopause) and its vital role in shaping female consciousness. Drawing from literary criticism, zoological study, and journalism, Darcey Steinke brings a fresh and critical look to the way our culture views aging women. Steinke has taught at Columbia University, Barnard and Princeton. Tara Parker-Pope is the Emmy-award-winning founder of Well, the New York Times’ consumer health site. She is the author of The Hormone Decision and For Better: The Science of a Good Marriage.
