Slate’s Mom and Dad Are Fighting LIVE in NYC
Slate’s wildly popular parenting podcast Mom and Dad Are Fighting is coming to Brooklyn! Join them Thursday, Feb. 18, for a live show at The Bell House. Hosts Allison Benedikt and Dan Kois will be joined by special guests to reveal triumphs and fails, argue about parenting in the news, and deliver some special live surprises.
Join Allison and Dan to talk about city parenting. Listen as they interview Slate's Michelle Goldberg on her latest piece, "Is a Surrogate a Mother?" Allison's husband John Cook, Executive Editor of Gawker, will also be on hand to discuss his own parenting triumphs and fails. Then they’ll lead an artist’s roundtable with top children’s artists:
Matt de la Peña, Newbery Medal winning author, Last Stop on Market Street
Laurie Berkner, bestselling children’s recording artist
Rebecca Stead, Newbery Medal winner and New York Times bestselling author of children’s fiction, including When You Reach Me
