  • What Makes a Baby New York Book Launch

    June 1, 2013

    What Makes a Baby New York Book Launchcory-author-image
    Saturday, June 1st @ 2:30pm
    Bank Street Books
    Broadway & 112th St
    New York, NY

     

    On Saturday, June 1st, Cory Silverberg will be at Bank Street Books to celebrate the launch of his new book, What Makes a Baby.

    Most books about where babies come from leave many of us out. They tell a nice story (mommy + daddy + intercourse = you!) but the truth is that more and more of us are acknowledging the help we get to bring children into our lives. That help might be a doctor, fertility clinic, adoption or foster agency; it might be a turkey baster and a friend; it might be a sperm donor or a surrogate. What Makes a Baby helps parents tell children a story about where they came from that isn’t just true for them, but true for everyone.

    Join Cory for a kid-friendly afternoon filled with reading, coloring (pulled straight from the pages of What Makes a Baby), food, drink, and discussions about where babies—all babies—come from.

  • Brian Kahn, Real Common Sense at Busboys and Poets

    Brian Kahn, Real Common Sense at Busboys and Poets

    April 5, 2011

    April 5, 2011, 6:30pm, join Busboys & Poets for the launch of Brian Kahn's new book (and response to Glenn Beck) Real Common Sense: Using our Founding Values to Reclaim Our Nation and Stop the Radical Right from Hijacking America. America’s extreme Right falsely claims the Founding Fathers as allies for their radical agenda. Pundit Glenn Beck has gone so far as to use the title of Tom Paine’s famous 1776 pamphlet Common Sense for his own book—a book that attacks the political, social and economic rights which Paine and the Founders fought for! Kahn claims it's time to cut through the rhetoric, smoke, and spin, and get back to our core American values. The featured book is available for purchase at the Global Exchange store located inside Busboys and Poets, 5th &K. This event is cosponsored by Code Pink and Global Exchange. Event is FREE and open to the public! Location:1025 5th Street NW Washington, DC 20001.
