‘College Admissions’ Author Visiting RCB

I remember when I applied to college. Man, that wasn’t a fun exercise. So many decisions … so many forms … so many decisions.

If you’re involved in the application process — as a student, parent or staffer at one of the two esteemed colleges in our comely community — you might want to know that help is available. And that help is coming to town.

Author and educational consultant Steven Roy Goodman will appear at River City Books at 7 p.m., Tuesday, May 13, to talk about his book College Admissions Together: It Takes a Family.

What I like about “College Admissions Together” is that it is more than a practical how-to-get-into-college book. Yes, it does explain key aspects of today’s college admissions process for both parents and students. But it is also a guide to healthy family relationships during the college admissions process. Goodman and co-author Andrea Leiman, a family psychologist, help parents recognize what makes the college admissions process a potential danger zone for families. They answer difficult questions, such as how parents can stay involved while allowing children to make more choices.

I should also note that the event is, of course, free and the public is invited to attend. Also, the book is on sale for 15 percent off through the event. I hope to see you there!
