MOSAIC, PA’s mixed heritage affinity group, is excited to announce our 2022 Virtual Keynote Speaker for Mixed Heritage Awareness Week!

Julie Lythcott-Haims will deliver an address based on her New York Times best-selling book How to Raise an Adult. Free and open to the public. Book signing to follow. Co-hosted by the PSPA.

Julie Lythcott-Haims believes in humans and is deeply interested in what gets in our way. Her work encompasses writing, speaking, teaching, mentoring, and activism.

She is the New York Times bestselling author of How to Raise an Adult which gave rise to a popular TED Talk. Her second book is the critically-acclaimed and award-winning prose poetry memoir Real American, which illustrates her experience as a Black and biracial person in white spaces. Her third book, Your Turn: How to Be an Adult, has been called a “groundbreakingly frank” guide to adulthood.

Julie holds degrees from Stanford, Harvard Law, and California College of the Arts. She currently serves on the boards of Common Sense Media, Black Women’s Health Imperative, Narrative Magazine, and on the Board of Trustees at California College of the Arts. She serves on the advisory boards of LeanIn.Org, Parents magazine and Baldwin For the Arts.

She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her partner of over thirty years, their itinerant young adults, and her mother.

Please contact Aya Murata for the Zoom access link and passcode by 3 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 10.

Julie Lythcott-Haims’s visit is made possible by the Donald Sutherland ’49 Fund for Curriculum with additional funding from Parents of Students of Phillips Academy.
