GEORGETOWN, Conn. -- Author and Table magazine columnist Marjorie Ingall will discuss her new book, "Mamaleh Knows Best: What Jewish Mothers Do to Raise Successful, Creative, Empathetic, Independent Children," on Sunday at Temple B'nai Chaim in Georgetown.
In her book, Ingall smashes the stereotype of the hectoring, guilt-inducing, clingy Jewish mother, according to a press release from Temple B'nai Chaim.
Blending personal anecdotes, humor, historical texts and scientific research, Ingall shares her secrets for raising self-sufficient, ethical, and accomplished children.
Additionally, she offers abundant examples illustrating how Jewish mothers have nurtured their children’s independence, fostered discipline, urged a healthy distrust of authority, consciously cultivated geekiness and kindness, stressed education, and (vitally) maintained a sense of humor, the release said.
In addition to being a columnist for Tablet magazine, the National Magazine Award-winning journal of Jewish culture and ideas, Ingall is a regular contributor to The New York Times Book Review.
For seven years she wrote the “East Village Mamele” column for The Jewish Daily Forward. She has been a contributing editor at Glamour and a contributing writer at Self, and has written for Ms., Wired, Real Simple, Redbook, Parents, and Parenting.
Copies of Ingall's book will be available for purchase. She will on be on hand to sign copies.
