Author event with Bill and Willie Geist, authors of Good Talk, Dad

Parnassus Books is thrilled to welcome Bill and Willie Geist for a discussion and signing of their new book, Good Talk, Dad: The Birds and the Bees ... and Other Conversations We Forgot to Have.In Good Talk, Dad, Bill and Willie Geist have begun an extended conversation between father and son on areas of mutual interest, agreement, and disagreement. Told in a unique back-and-forth banter style, the hilarious father-son team laugh together at the shared journey of their relationship. They riff on fatherhood, religion, music, sports, summer camp disasters, driving lessons gone horribly wrong, being on TV, and their wonderfully odd family life.The Geists decided to write this book so their children and grandchildren would have a record of their unusual father-son relationship. It's remarkably funny, as well as poignant and sincere, a lighthearted look at the crazy things fathers and sons go through and the unique bond those experiences forge.Bill Geist is the New York Times bestselling author of Little League Confidential, The Big Five-Oh, Fore!
