Exit: The Endings That Set Us Free


Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot, Ph.D., Emily Hargroves Fisher Professor of Education, Graduate School of Education, Harvard University

Host: David Inge

Saying goodbye is an unavoidable part of life. Some goodbyes are small, but sociologist Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot says the small goodbyes teach us how to handle the major transitions. But, she says, there are few lessons in our culture, our schooling or our socialization in how to gracefully take our leave. Sara Lawrence Lightfoot will be our guest and we’ll talk about making the movement away from the old, a step forward, even when it feels like a retreat. That’s the subject of her book,  "Exit: The Endings that Set Us Free."
