In Person. Mothers aren’t supposed to be angry. Still, Minna Dubin was an angry mom: exhausted by hard, thankless full-time parenting work and feeling her career slip away from her, she would find herself screaming at her child or exploding in anger. Despite the pressure she felt to suffer in silence, Minna chose to talk publicly about her experiences, kicking off an international conversation about a rage that, it turns out, nearly every mother has experienced. Mom Rage is Minna Dubin’s groundbreaking work of reportage on the national crisis of mother rage – what it is, where it comes from, and how we can all learn to work through it. Minna will be joined in conversation by New York Times opinion writer Jessica Grose.

Minna Dubin (she/her) is a writer and mother in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her writing has been featured in the New York Times, Salon, Parents, the Philadelphia Inquirer, Romper, The Forward, Hobart, MUTHA Magazine, and Literary Mama. She is the recipient of an artist enrichment grant from the Kentucky Foundation for Women. As a leading feminist voice on mom rage, Minna has appeared on MSNBC, Good Morning America, The Tamron Hall Show, NBC10 Boston, and NPR.

Jessica Grose is an opinion writer at The New York Times and the author of "Screaming on the Inside: The Unsustainability of American Motherhood." She is also the author of two novels, "Soulmates" and "Sad Desk Salad."

Copies of Mom Rage: The Everyday Crisis of Modern Motherhood and Screaming on the Inside: The Unsustainability of American Motherhood will be available for purchase.
