Reading, Q-and-A, Signing: Sara Zaske
“Achtung Baby” is a humorous and insightful look on the conflicting perspectives of raising children in American and German culture. After moving to Berlin from Oregon, Zaske observed the freedom German parents allow their children and surprisingly discovered those children to be thriving and self-reliant. She shares her own experiences as well as interviews with other parents, teachers and experts. Her articles have appeared in The New York Times, Time.com and Germany’s largest Sunday paper, Bild am Sontag. She now lives in Moscow with her husband and children.
