Admissions rates of 6%? Kids applying to 32 colleges? Sixteen-year-olds with more impressive resumes than Fortune 500 CEOs? Has the nation lost its mind?
Why yes, it has! The college admissions process now sucks approximately 1250% more time, money and psychic energy than it did when today’s parents were going through the same process. Author J.D. Rothman is here to shine a light on the insanity with laugh-out-loud wit and incisive anthropological observations as she reads excerpts from her bestselling book, The Neurotic Parent's Guide to College Admissions.
Woven throughout are hilarious bits of advice and cultural insights detailing the anxiety-ridden quest for college homes for J.D.'s children.
J.D. will be reading and signing her hilarious new book at the Pleasanton Library on Wednesday, April 25 at 7:00 p.m.
J.D. Rothman is an Emmy-winning television writer, children’s media producer and lyricist.
