Julie Lythcott-Haims

A Conversation with Julie Lythcott-Haims on Her New Memoir—
Real American

Julie Lythcott-Haims, the New York Times bestselling author of How to Raise an Adult, has written a different kind of book this time out—a deeply personal, biting, and affecting account of her life growing up as a biracial Black woman in America in Real American: A Memoir.

A courageous, achingly honest meditation on what it means to come to consciousness as a mixed-race child and adult in a nation where Black lives weren’t meant to matter.  —  Michelle Alexander, New York Times bestselling author of The New Jim Crow

Julie Lythcott-Haims served as the dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising at Stanford University, where she received the Dinkelspiel Award for her contributions to the undergraduate experience. She holds a BA from Stanford, a JD from Harvard Law, and an MFA in writing from the California College of the Arts. She is a member of the San Francisco Writers Grotto and resides in the Bay Area with her husband, their two teenagers, and her mother. Learn more about her at www.julielythcotthaims.com.
