Summer Book Club Discussion – This is the Way it Always Is, by Laurie Frankel

Co-sponsored by the Stanford Faculty Staff Help Center

You are invited to join us for a virtual book club to discuss thoughts raised by the book: This is the Way it Always Is, by Laurie Frankel.

This novel is a heartwarming and thought-provoking story that delves into the challenges and complexities of gender identity and family dynamics. Frankel brings to life a story close to her own heart with unforgettable characters, chronicling the universal challenges of every loving parent to support and protect their children as well as the unique challenges of the parents of transgender children.

Please read the book on your own in advance and join us online for discussion facilitated by the Stanford Faculty Staff Help Center.

Attendance at the live session is required to receive incentive points. This class will not be recorded.
