Science of Parenthood Live!

Norine Dworkin-McDaniel, Author of ‘Science of Parenthood’
8:15 p.m., Digital Adventure Theater, Level 2
Doors open at 8:00 p.m.

A feisty mix of stand-up, slideshow and comic storytelling, Science of Parenthood Live! offers hilarious perspective on such pressing questions as …  Why DO kids grow up so fast, but Candy Land drags on so s-l-o-w-l-y? Why must children sleep perpendicular to any adult laying next to them? A totally babysitter-worthy event of somewhat science-y, always irreverent comedy and commiseration for parents who’ve despaired of ever sleeping, showering or getting their dignity back.

Presentation Followed by Meet & Greet
