Acclaimed columnist Jon Carroll will host an evening in conversation with the literary power house married couple, Pulitzer Prize-winner Michael Chabon and New York Times best-selling author Ayelet Waldman.  Chabon, author of novels including and The Yiddish Policemen’s UnionWonder Boys received the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2001 for his internationally celebrated novel, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay.  His newest book, Manhood for Amateurs: The Pleasures and Regrets of a Husband, Father, and Son (release date October 6, 2009) is a collection of slyly interlinked essays based on personal reflections, regrets, and reexaminations, and is his first major work of nonfiction.  Ayelet Waldman is the author of The New York Times bestseller, Bad Mother: A Chronicle of Maternal Crimes, Minor Calamities and Occasional Moments of Grace.  A film based on Waldman’s novel, Love and Other Impossible Pursuits starring Natalie Portman recently premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.  Chabon and Waldman will talk about the tough choices they, and other parents, face today in this lively and humorous candid conversation.
