Lecture: Everything You Want To Know About Twins

I tend to give special attention to books or lectures or programs dedicated to twins.  Often there are a lot of generalizations made or misconceptions repeated so they don't always resonate for me, but I try to go in with an open mind.  Next month there will be a lecture given at UCLA which sounds as though it could be quite exciting. It is hosted by Abigail Pogrebin who is an identical twin and who has written a book called "One And The Same" (subtitled: My Life as an Identical Twin and What I've Learned About Everyone's Struggle to Be Singular). The book makes some fascinating observations about life as a twin and how it can be both wonderful and difficult to grown up as one.  

Ms. Pogrebin, a former 60 Minutes producer, is a dynamic speaker and is moderating a lecture hosted by the UCLA Center for Society and Genetics that is being called a "rare gathering of six of the country's top experts in the field of twins' development, genetics, and psychotherapy". See all the information about the 6 experts who will be speaking at the lecture on this flyer.
