Featuring Mike Birbiglia and J. Hope Stein, authors of The New One: Painfully True Stories from a Reluctant Dad
Tickets $32 (book included)
Created and hosted by writers Patrick Sauer and David J. Roth, Squawkin’ Sports is an ongoing Greenlight Bookstore literary series featuring book chats with grown-up authors writing about grown-ups playing kiddie games. For this very special installment of Squawkin' Sports, Sauer and Roth chat with comedian Mike Birbiglia and poet J. Hope Stein about their new book, The New One. With laugh-out-loud funny parenting observations, New York Times bestselling author and award-winning comedian Birbiglia delivers a book that is perfect for anyone who has ever raised a child, been a child, or refuses to stop acting like one. Along with hilarious and poignant stories he has never shared before, the pages of The New One are sprinkled with poetry Stein wrote as she navigated the same rocky shores of new parenthood. This book is an experiment—sort of like a family.
Each ticket to this event includes a copy of The New One. Books will be shipped to ticketholders following the event (note that we cannot ship to non-US addresses).
A portion of proceeds from every book sale will be donated to Food Bank of New York City.
