The cats nestle close to their kittens now. The lambs have laid down with the sheep. You’re cozy and warm in your bed, my dear. Please go the f**k to sleep.

READ: A Heckuva Book Pitch. That’s Putting It Mildly. By Julie Bosman for The New York Times

Go the F**k to Sleep, a pants-wettingly funny bedtime book for parents, has received an extraordinary amount of pre-publication attention from parents around the world and is #1 on Amazon. As Peter Maravelis of City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco told the New York Times: “It’s the zeitgeist.”

Go the F**k to Sleep author Adam Mansbach, illustrator Ricardo Cortés, and Special Guests will be in conversation with Paul Holdengräber to discuss Children, Sleep Deprivation and Insomnia.

ADAM MANSBACnovels include The End of the Jews, winner of the California Book Award, and the best-selling Angry Black White Boy, a San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of 2005. His fiction and essays have appeared in the New York Times Book Review, the Believer, Granta, the Los Angeles Times, and many other publications. He is the 2010-2011 New Voices Professor of Fiction at Rutgers University. His daughter, Vivien, is three. 

RICARDO CORTÉS has illustrated books about marijuana, electricity, the Jamaican bobsled team, and Chinese food. His work has been featured in the New York Times, Vanity Fair, Entertainment Weekly, New York Magazine, the Village Voice, the San Francisco Chronicle, and on the O'Reilly Factor and CNN. He lives in Brooklyn, NY, where he is working on a book about the history of Coca-Cola and cocaine. To see more of his work, visit:
