Virtual event with Michael Ian Black/A Better Man
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN MOVED TO THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22!

Anderson's Bookshops is proud to welcome author and comedian Michael Ian Black to celebrate his new book, A Better Man: A (Mostly Serious) Letter to my Son! Conversation partner will be announced soon!

A poignant look at boyhood, in the form of a heartfelt letter from comedian Michael Ian Black to his teenage son before he leaves for college, and a radical plea for rethinking masculinity and teaching young men to give and receive love.
 
This is a ticketed event; a purchase is required to attend.  All tickets include a signed (bookplate) copy of the new book.

Please note that we can only ship to US addresses!  Please choose the ticket that includes shipping if you would like your book mailed to you.

More about the book:

In a world in which the word masculinity now often goes hand in hand with toxic, comedian, actor, and father Michael Ian Black offers up a way forward for boys, men, and anyone who loves them. Part memoir, part advice book, and written as a heartfelt letter to his college-bound son, A Better Man reveals Black’s own complicated relationship with his father, explores the damage and rising violence caused by the expectations placed on boys to “man up,” and searches for the best way to help young men be part of the solution, not the problem. “If we cannot allow ourselves vulnerability,” he writes, “how are we supposed to experience wonder, fear, tenderness?”

Honest, funny, and hopeful, Black skillfully navigates the complex gender issues of our time and delivers a poignant answer to an urgent question: How can we be, and raise, better men?
