WELLESLEY

While many people have to stand outside in the cold to see Matt Lauer and the Today Show crew, Rosanna Hertz will get to talk to them inside and on-air.

Hertz, a Brookline resident and Wellesley College professor, will appear on the NBC morning show on Monday to talk about her book, "Single by Chance, Mothers by Choice." The book, released in October, discusses what Hertz sees as a new pattern in families: single women having children.

Her research, which started in 1996, found an interesting dichotomy among single mothers: some were impoverished teens, and some were affluent 30-somethings, the Globe reported in December.

Hertz's segment on Monday is scheduled to air between 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.
