Please join UCLA's Friends of the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and the Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital Board of Advisors for an Open Mind/#WOW program with Sandra Tsing Loh, author of The Madwoman and the Roomba.

The Madwoman and the Roomba:  My Year of Domestic Mayhem is the follow- up to her New York Times bestselling book, The Madwoman in the Volvo.In this witty new book, written prior to the coronavirus and lockdown, Sandra Tsing Loh chronicles the indignities, hilarities, and unexpected joys of life in the so-called golden years.

Reading The Madwoman and the Roomba  now, while in lockdown and wearing masks,  also creates what book reviewer, Shana Nys Dambrot says is a "nostalgia for the innocent dysfunctions of the time before", our "nutty normal"  before COVID-19!

Sandra Tsing Loh is a writer, performer, and radio commentator. Her work has been heard on NPR’s Morning Edition and This American Life. She is a contributing editor to The Atlantic  and host of the syndicated daily radio “minute,”  The Loh Down on Science. `

Susan Y. Bookheimer, Ph.D., Joaquin Fuster Distinguished Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience and Director, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center, UCLA School of Medicine , will join Sandra Tsing Loh in discussion. 

Tuesday, October 20, 5pm PT

Registration is required for this free live private Zoom event.
