BGA is proud to welcome acclaimed author and young adult expert Julie Lythcott-Haims to campus. She is The New York Times bestselling author of "How to Raise an Adult," which gave rise to a popular TED Talk. Her most recent book, "Your Turn: How to Be an Adult," has been called a “groundbreakingly frank” guide to adulthood for students across the country.  

Lythcott-Haims holds degrees from Stanford, Harvard Law, and California College of the Arts. She currently serves on the boards of Common Sense Media, Black Women’s Health Imperative, Narrative Magazine, and on the Board of Trustees at California College of the Arts. She serves on the advisory boards of LeanIn.Org, Parents magazine and Baldwin For the Arts.  

While on campus, she will share perspectives and best practices for helping students navigate the transition to adulthood while fostering self-efficacy and resilience. All BGA families and students are invited to attend, and the broader Franklin / Nashville community may also register.
