    Greenlight partners with St. Joseph's College to present the Brooklyn Voices series of lectures, forums, performances, and public discussion. The Brooklyn Voices series promotes and enhances the creative vitality of our home neighborhoods of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill by providing writers, artists, and intellectuals with a local forum in which to discuss and present their works.

    When New York magazine contributing editor Jennifer Senior’s cover article “All Joy and No Fun” was published in 2010, it set off a firestorm of responses in the media and blogosphere. Sharing scientific experiments and studies that show parents are no happier than their childless peers, Senior argued that although parenting can come at a high price, the high rewards are not always measurable by surveys and questionnaires. Now, Senior’s fresh and highly anticipated debut book brings together an extensive amount of research in history, sociology, economics, psychology and anthropology, as well as interviews from the parenting trenches themselves, to examine how children have truly reshaped parents’ lives. Senior talks with Jodi Cantor, New York Times correspondent and author of the bestelling and critically acclaimed biography of the Obama family, about the huge body of research on the paradoxes of modern parenting, and why her unique take on the issue became such a flashpoint for parents and non-parents alike.

    St. Joseph’s College is located at 245 Clinton Avenue. Staff will direct guests to the Tuohy Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.
