Lunch provided. Free and open to the public

"Cracked Open" is Miriam Zoll’s eye-opening account of growing into womanhood with the simultaneous opportunities offered by the women’s movement and new discoveries in reproductive technologies. Influenced by pervasive media and cultural messages suggesting that science had finally eclipsed Mother nature, Zoll –– like millions of women –– delays motherhood until the age of 40.
