Author Ashley Merryman to Speak at Rippowam Cisqua School

Rippowam Cisqua School’s Foundations of Education Series continues on Wednesday, January 15th, at 10:00 a.m. with a visit from bestselling author and award-winning journalist Ashley Merryman. With Po Bronson, Merryman has written two New York Times bestselling books – Top Dog: The Science of Winning and Losing and NurtureShock: New Thinking about Children. Together, they've won nine national awards for reporting. Merryman has been on countless radio and television shows, while email, Facebook, and Twitter are filled with demands to read her essays, such as "Losing is Good for You," "How Not to Talk to Your Kids," and "Creativity Crisis." 

On the 15th, Merryman will speak at Rippowam Cisqua about “Top Dog: The Science of Competition” and she will explore questions such as, “Why does one person thrive under pressure, while another panics?” and “What makes someone a winner?” A question and answer session and book signing will follow the lecture.

This event is free and open to the public and will take place in the Sky Room on the Rippowam Cisqua School Lower Campus (325 West Patent Rd., Mount Kisco, NY  10549). The presentation is part of Rippowam Cisqua School’s Foundations of Education Series, a series of informative discussions with experts in the field of education and parenting.  These discussions are designed to offer parents insights and strategies for raising successful, lifelong learners.  The lectures are free and open to the public.
