Book Club: Cinderella Ate My Daughter by Peggy Orenstein

August 22, 2019, 6:30 pm

The rise of the girlie-girl, warns Peggy Orenstein, is no innocent phenomenon. Following her acclaimed books Flux, Schoolgirls and the provocative New York Times best-seller Waiting for Daisy, Orenstein’s Cinderella Ate My Daughter offers a radical, timely wake-up call for parents, revealing the dark side of a pretty and pink culture confronting girls at every turn as they grow into adults. Join us for a discussion of the book and a tour of the exhibition Dread & Delight: Fairy Tales in an Anxious World.

Free and open to the public. Registration is required.

Books are available for purchase in the museum shop.
