Release Party for The Daddy Shift

By Jason Marsh | June 5, 2009 | 0 comments

Anyone in or near San Francisco should join us tomorrow night to celebrate the release of The Daddy Shift, the new book by Greater Good Senior Editor Jeremy Adam Smith.

The Daddy Shift offers an insightful take on the changing nature of the American family. It's not only rich with compelling stories of stay-at-home dads and breadwinning moms, but it sheds light on why these new family forms have emerged, and how we as a society should best respond to them.

The book's been out for not quite a week, but it has already enjoyed some great coverage, including this interview with Lisa Belkin of The New York Times.

The release party will be tomorrow night (June 6) at Cover to Cover bookstore in Noe Valley (1307 Castro St.). And if you can't make it then, Jeremy will be reading from the book next Sunday, June 14, at 5 p.m. at Pegasus Books in Berkeley (2349 Shattuck Ave)–part of an event for the award-winning 'zine Rad Dad.

Hope to see you there!
