Parenting with a Past with Michelle Tea and Jerry Stahl: Two writers discuss their journeys from life on the edge to life as devoted parents. In the Charlotte Martin Theatre.

Old Guy Dad recounts the adventures of a man who, in the autumn of his years—or at least the pre-autumn—discovers his girlfriend is pregnant. He is going to be a father. Again. Only this time he wants to do it right: no heroin, plenty of low-back pain.

A collection of celebrated columns from The Rumpus with new material and never-before-told tales, OG Dad finds Jerry Stahl fighting a terminal disease not to mention mortality, sleeplessness, and the soul-crushing weirdness of preschool drop-offs with parents half his age. Square is the last frontier.
