In news that is as dispiriting as it is unsurprising, the so-called "Princeton Mom," Susan Patton, is writing a book in which she will purportedly offer advice on how to land an Ivy League husband, as well as other challenges of adulthood.
Patton became famous (or infamous, by some accounts) in March, when she wrote a letter to the daily newspaper of Princeton University, from which she graduated in 1977, and which her two sons also attended. Patton's viral letter advised women to find a man on campus, as they would never have such marital options in life again.
"For most of you, the cornerstone of your future and happiness will be inextricably linked to the man you marry, and you will never again have this concentration of men who are worthy of you. Here's what nobody is telling you: Find a husband on campus before you graduate," Patton wrote.
While some agreed with her antiquated advice, others found it retrograde and even sexist. Now, according to the Associated Press, Patton will publish a book called "Smarten Up!: Words of Wisdom from the Princeton Mom," to be published in the spring of 2014 by Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.
