Comedian Mike Birbiglia and poet J. Hope Stein, a real-life couple, are celebrating the release of their new book, The New One: Painfully True Stories from a Reluctant Dad, in a special virtual event held in collaboration with Auntie’s Bookstore. Purchase of the book is required and acts as a ticket for entry into the event, which is hosted on Zoom. Birbiglia and Stein plan to talk about their experience writing the book, which humorously and honestly explores the trials and tribulations of parenthood and its accompanying anxieties.
