In celebration of National Jewish Book Month!
Join us for a book discussion and author talk with
in conversation with
Meredith Jacobs, author of
Just Between Us: Mother & Son
“Raw, intimate, and true . . . A Better Man cracked me wide open, and it’s a template for the conversation we need to be having with our boys.”
- Peggy Orenstein, bestselling author of Boys & Sex
A Better Man is a poignant look at boyhood, in the form of a heartfelt letter from comedian, actor, father, 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. Black 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.
In Just Between Us, advice, guidelines, and prompts by author Meredith Jacobs and her son pave the way to discussing everything exciting and scary about growing up, from friendships and school to positive masculinity. With plenty of free space to write, draw, or make lists, this journal will open the lines of communication and help strengthen mother-son relationships.
Michael Ian Black is a multi-media talent who’s starred in numerous films and TV series, written and/or directed two films, and is a prolific author and commentator.
Meredith Jacobs, Jewish Women International's CEO, is an award-winning journalist and former editor-in-chief of Washington Jewish Week. She is the author and co-author of multiple books including The Modern Jewish Mom’s Guide to Shabbat: Connect and Celebrate—Bring Your Family Together with the Friday Night Meal.
