Allison Pearson - How Hard Can It Be? — in conversation with Madhulika Sikka — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, June 12, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Even before Sarah Jessica Parker brought her to life on the screen, millions of women identified with Kate Reddy, the sharp, hard-working, and very funny protagonist of Pearson’s I Don’t Know How She Does It, who struggled to balance the demands of a high-profile job with the needs of her husband and two children—not to mention her own. This eagerly awaited sequel picks up Kate’s story as she’s nearing fifty and caught between rebellious teenagers and aging parents. When her husband leaves his job, she re-enters the workforce, but after years away on the mommy track, she’s at a serious disadvantage; even at the hedge fund she founded, her age and gender make her invisible. Kate faces these and other challenges with wit and humor. 

Pearson will be in conversation with Madhulika Sikka, PBS public editor and author of The Breast Cancer Alphabet.
