Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author and journalist
Judith Warner's latest book is And Then They Stopped Talking to Me: Making Sense of Middle School. It was published in early May to great praise, and instantly became a New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice selection. Judith is best known for her 2005 New York Times best-seller, Perfect Madness: Motherhood in the Age of Anxiety, and New York Times column, "Domestic Disturbances." In recent years, she has worked as a Journalism Fellow for the Women Donors Network’s Reflective Democracy Campaign and remains a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, specializing in women's leadership and work-family policy. Her last book, We've Got Issues: Children and Parents in the Age of Medication, received multiple awards from mental health advocacy and education groups, including the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. A former special correspondent for Newsweek in Paris, she hosted “The Judith Warner Show” on XM satellite radio from 2005 to 2007, and wrote the 1993 best-seller Hillary Clinton: The Inside Story, as well as several other books. She speaks frequently on American family life, workplace issues, and mental health, and lives in Washington, DC.
"Accomplished and highly readable" — The New York Times Book Review (Editors' Choice Selection) Judith Warner has written a compulsively readable book, a cross between The Breakfast Club and Desperate Housewives. It holds a mirror up to us as much as to our kids, and indeed to society as a whole." —Anne-Marie Slaughter, author of Unfinished Business: Women Men Work Family “Judith Warner brilliantly challenges the assumption that middle school has to be a chalkboard jungle, offering both fascinating social history and practical advice on a life stage that sends many adults into a PTSD spiral.” —Peggy Orenstein, author of Boys & Sex and Girls & Sex “As the parent of a middle schooler, I felt as if Judith Warner had peered into my life—and the lives of many of my patients.” —Lori Gottlieb, author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone "I have often advised parents not to allow themselves to be sucked back into middle school when they see their children’s distress or hear their war stories. But I had no guidebook to offer them. Now I do.” —Michael G. Thompson, PhD, co-author of Raising Cain
