Sharon Lamb:  Join psychologist and expert witness Sharon Lamb as she reads from her book, The Not Good Enough Mother. Lamb, a Professor at UMass Boston, and a practicing psychologist in Shelburne, Vermont, evocatively describes the parents she evaluates in high stakes cases concerning termination of parental rights. She will take listeners to her office where mothers who are about to lose their children tell their traumatic life stories, to church basements where they have supervised visits and where Lamb looks for glimmers of attachment, and to the courtroom where she recommends to the judge what is in the best interest of the child. When Lamb discovers her own child is addicted to opiates, she turns the question of what is good enough mothering on herself. Advance readers describe Lamb’s “surefooted prose” as reminiscent of the “writerly precision of Joan Didion,” and the book as “beautiful and wrenching,” “bracingly intelligent and deeply moving.”
