I’ll be reading and—oy veh—talking about writing and fatherhood at Word Sprouts, The Park Slope Food Coop reading series, on Friday, October 19th, at 7pm. Come learn what made this once avowed child-hating baller the poster-boy for stay-at-home breeder-dom I am today. It’s a sad tale.
As if that’s not enough, headliner John Donohue, who blogs at Stay at Stove Dad and edited the bestselling anthology Man With a Pan, is awesome. And Paula Bernstein, author and Babble columnist, will host.
The event takes place at the coop itself, on Union Street between 7th and 6th Avenues in Brooklyn. There will be snacks! (Read: hummus.) This is open to everyone, giving you non-card-carrying comrades a glimpse into the inner-sanctum of socialism that not even The Daily Show was allowed to film. You’ll have the opportunity to grill me in an audience Q&A, during which I promise to be evasive and use language no parent should ever use when discussing their children.
If you’re in the New York area, I hope you’ll come.
