I have a series about a fourth grade boy named Bobby Ellis-Chan. His father is an ex-NFL football player turned SAHD (stay at home dad).
So imagine my delight when I received a letter fromJason Sperber, a SAHD/blogger who ldentified with the dad in the books!
We've become friends and not long ago I was invited to be a special guest at Skylight books in Los Angeles for anawesome eventcelebrating the release ofRAD DAD: DISPATCHES FROM THE FRONTIERS OF FATHERHOOD. . .
(That's Jason with anthology author/editorTomas Monizand Mista Cookie Jar.)
Tomas was up first and told us about the anthology, then read. As you can see, there was a totally kid-friendly vibe in bookstore . . .
Next was Jason and he read a very heartfelt essay . . .
(Here'sJason's blogabout the event.)
When it was my turn, I read fromBOBBY THE BRAVE (SOMETIMES). . .
The icing on the cake as whenMista Cookie Jarsang and the kids began to dance with Peepy
Peepywas thrilled when she serenaded . . .
What a blast!
I was honored to be a Rad Dad for the night!!!
