Our TALK series for September-November explores the theme of the modern family. Beginning in the mid-20th century, the stereotypical American family has been comprised of mother, father and 2.5 children — the so-called nuclear family. Yet, in reality, very few families meet this standard. Adoptive, step, blended, multi-generational – families realistically come in all shapes and sizes. Relationships between family members are also complex and run the gamut from loving and nurturing to traumatic. The books in this series challenge and complicate our notion of what it means to be a family.
