About this Event

From Dr. Amy Blackstone, childfree woman, co-creator of the blog we’re {not} having a baby!, and nationally recognized expert on the childfree choice, comes a definitive investigation into the history and current growing movement of adults choosing to forgo parenthood: what it means for our society, economy, environment, perceived gender roles, and legacies, and how understanding and supporting all types of families can lead to positive outcomes for parents, non-parents, and children alike.

Please join Dr. Amy Blackstone for an author talk featuring her new book, Childfree by Choice: The Movement Redefining Family and Creating a New Age of Independence on Tuesday, November 5th at 6:30 p.m. The event will be held at the gorgeous Creeds Coffee Bar, located at 390 Dupont St. in the core of the Annex, steps away from Dupont Station.
