KMOX's Charlie Brennan broadcasting live from West High for a book club event

KMOX's Charlie Brennan is broadcasting live from West High School on Thursday, Feb. 9 from 9 - 11 a.m. for the stations February book club event. 

The book club is featuring Amy Chua, author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother.

When Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother was published last year, Amy Chua’s memoir in extreme parenting set off a global parenting debate with its story of one mother’s journey in strict parenting. Chua became a media sensation propelling her book to become a Time magazine cover story.

Chua argues that Western parenting tries to respect and nurture children’s individuality, while Chinese parents typically believe that arming children with skills, strong work habits, and inner confidence prepares them best for the future. Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother chronicles Chua’s iron-willed decision to raise her daughters, Sophia and Lulu, the Chinese way and the remarkable, sometimes heartbreaking results her choice inspires.

Amy Chua is the John M. Duff Professor of Law at Yale Law School. Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother was a runaway New York Times bestseller, as well as a bestseller in the U.K., Germany, Israel, Korea, China, and Taiwan.
