Memoir Breaking through the Spiral Ceiling is posted by Nature!

Dear friends and readers,

My Nature editor, Ilona Miko, has just posted an announcement about my forthcoming memoir and a lecture I'm giving on it at Emory University on the women in science forum.  You can check it out here:

Having a book nearing release is very stimulating and I'm really looking forward to May 2, when Amazon and the other outlets will have the book available for ordering.  I love the cover, which my daughter Heather helped me with.  At Emory, I'm giving a big public lecture as well as meeting with students, and I hope we'll discuss career/family balance, one of my major themes.  Now that I'm evolving into a writer, I have a lot of nostalgia for biology too, so I'd love to talk about that with the students.
