Internationally best-selling author and New York Times contributor Pamela Druckerman leads us on a quest for wisdom, self-knowledge and the right pair of pants. A witty dispatch from the front lines of the forties, There Are No Grown-Ups is a (midlife) coming-of-age story, and a book for anyone trying to find their place in the world.
What are the modern forties, and what do we know once we reach them? What makes someone a "grown-up" anyway? Part frank memoir, part hilarious investigation of daily life, There Are No Grown-Ups explores the in-between decade. Druckerman will be in conversation with Jancee Dunn.
Pamela Druckerman is the author of three books including the international best seller Bringing Up Bébé: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting. She’s also an Emmy Award-winning documentary producer and a contributing opinion writer at The New York Times.
Jancee Dunn is the New York Times bestselling author of five books, including But Enough About Me, a memoir of her rock and roll years, and an essay collection, Why Is My Mother Getting A Tattoo?

Her first book for children, I’m Afraid Your Teddy Is In Trouble Today, was published in October 2017 by Candlewick Press.
