Join us for a reading and book launch celebrating the publication of Emily Bloom’s new memoir, I Cannot Control Everything Forever. Bloom will be in conversation with writer Lauren Goldenberg.

The memoir narrates Emily Bloom’s journey toward and through motherhood, a path that has become, for the average woman, laden with data and medical technology. Bloom faces decisions regarding genetic testing and diagnosis—technologies that offer the illusion of certainty but carry the weight of hard decisions. Her desire to know more thrusts her back into the history of science, as she traces the discoveries that impacted the modern state of pregnancy and motherhood. With the birth of their daughter, who is diagnosed with congenital deafness and later Type 1 diabetes, Bloom and her husband find their life centered around medical data, devices, and doctor’s visits—but also made richer and fuller by parenting an exceptional child.

Registration is required for this event.

This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, parents, students, and the public.
