Ayelet Waldman and hubby Michael Chabon in conversation...about their parenting books

Remember Ayelet Waldman? She's the writer who told the New York Times she loved her husband more than her kids? (read that Modern Love story here). Well after my kids' behavior this afternoon, I can't say I blame her. BUT, her remarks, which caused quite the uproar, spawned a book: “Bad Mother: A Chronicle of Maternal Crimes, Minor Calamities and Occasional Moments of Grace.”

This talented writer is married to another talented writer, Michael Chabon. He won the Pulitzer Prize, among other honors. He's out with a new book of essays, "Manhood for Amateurs: The Pleasures and Regrets of a Husband, Father, and Son."

Hear both of them speak at the Berkeley Rep on Monday, December 7, at 7:00 p.m. They'll be in conversation with SF Chronicle columnist Jon Carroll.

The event is a fundraiser for Park Day School's financial assistance program.

Tickets are $30.

As a Frisco Kids reader, you can get a $5 discount ordering online. Just select the student rate and when you pick up your tickets at will call, tell them “I got the Bad Mom Discount.” I know, I'd be embarassed to say that too, but that's what you have to say to save five bucks. Maybe just go for the full price.

Don't forget to enter Frisco Kids' LeapFrog Tag Jr. giveaway contest!
