Event Type(s):Community Event
Description:Agora Arts welcomes Luther College graduate 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. Blackstone will talk about writing her book and sign books on Friday, September 27th at 4:00 p.m. at Agora Arts.

Motivated by her own experiences and those of the childfree community she has connected with, Blackstone has become a nationally recognized expert of the childfree choice who has conducted research on the subject since 2008. She shares her expertise and trail-blazing research with the world in her first book, CHILDFREE BY CHOICE: The Movement Redefining Family and Creating a New Age of Independence (Dutton 2019), a definitive investigation into the childfree choice and movement. Blackstone compellingly explores the childfree movement from its conception to today, revealing how it intersects with and has been shaped by our cultural and personal understandings of gender, race, sexual orientation, politics, environmentalism, and feminism. Dr. Amy Blackstone is a professor in Sociology and the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center at the University of Maine, where she studies childlessness and the childfree choice, workplace harassment, and civic engagement.
