Whether you have a couple of little ones around or know someone who does,  anyone who knows the deal about how hard it is to put a kid to sleep can appreciate the message in Adam Mansbach’s subversive bedtime book, Go the F**k to Sleep.

This evening at the City Lights Bookstore, California Book Award winner Mansbach will be performing a full reading of his hilariously honest book that gives parents (and other victims near children right around bedtime) the chance to find the humor in their irritation.

The event starts at 7pm. Check the City Lights Bookstore site for details.
