Connecting Authors and Readers for discussions about topics that affect our families.


Summit Series for Families has been supporting parents since 2009 when we launched our first online event.   Our site was developed to promote discussions between authors of different parenting books with real people—parents, educators and teens.  Participants in our discussions and interviews have included media magnet, Lenore Skenazy, author of Free Range Kids; Diane Levin, Ph.D., professor of education at Wheelock College and author of So Sexy So Soon; and Peg Tyre, award-winning journalist and author of the groundbreaking book The Trouble with Boys.

Our basic belief is still the same—there’s no one “right” way to raise our kids, manage our families, or live our lives.  What works for one family may not work for another.  We’re here to learn from each other–to share stories and give a platform to different perspectives.

Our site has evolved to include book reviews and recommendations, essays from parents and teens, and discussions on issues that affect today’s families.

If you are an author or publisher of a book that would be a good fit for our audience, please email for information on upcoming opportunities.
