Michael Ian Black + Liz Plank

Live via Zoom:
Wednesday, September 16, 7:30 PM ET
Michael Ian Black presents A Better Man: A (Mostly Serious) Letter to My Son
In conversation with Liz Plank
Tickets free - $35 (see below)

Michael Ian Black is many things: actor, comedian, screenwriter, award-winning children’s book author, essayist, memoirist, podcaster. His insightful new book, A Better Man, tackles yet another role: father to a son. Written in the form of a letter to his son as he gets ready to leave for college, this blend of memoir and advice, written with both weight and wit, challenges the outdated assumptions that society continues to impose upon boys about their place in the world. A Better Man reveals Black’s own complicated relationship with his father, explores the damage and violence caused by the expectations placed on boys to “man up,” and searches for the best way to help young men be part of the solution, not the problem. Honest, funny, and hopeful, Black skillfully navigates the complex gender issues of our time and delivers a poignant answer to an urgent question: How can we be, and raise, better men? Liz Plank, award-winning journalist and author of For the Love of Men: A New Vision for Mindful Masculinity, joins Black in conversation at this special virtual event.

Some ticket options include a signed copy of A Better Man, which can be shipped or picked up at one of our store locations. Please note book delivery options when purchasing. (Personalization is not available for this event.)
