Spring 2014: Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother

battle hymn cover

This spring, we’ll read Amy Chua’s Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother as the common reading. This book about “extreme parenting” raises questions about how families interact, what the role of parents should be, and cultural differences that shape family dynamics. It’s a funny, sometimes disturbing, tender, and controversial book about “a mother, two daughters, and two dogs” and “a bitter clash of cultures.” It should provide interesting food for discussion.
