4th annual Edgy Moms event from Brooklyn Reading Works

So what is an edgy mom? Based on the reading I'd have to say it's a mom who questions authority and group-think, and who tells the truth, even if it's shocking. Also, judging from the night's readers, edgy moms are funny!

- Louise Sloan, author of Knock Yourself Up, A Tell All Guide to Becoming a Single Mom

Brooklyn Reading Works presents the Fourth Annual Edgy Mother's Day on May 20, 2010 at 8PM at The Old Stone House in Park Slope. It's motherhood without sanctimony and an evening  of maternal revelry, wisdom and irreverent fun.


This is not your mother's Mother's Day but a celebration of mommydom nonetheless that will shock, rock, and make you laugh 'til your thongs snap!


Hear Brooklyn writers of non-fiction, fiction, memoir and poetry rant and rave about mothers and motherhood. They will shock, amuse, and entertain but won't make you eat carrots before dessert.


Bring a friend. Or bring your mom.


Hosted by Louise Crawford and Sophia Romero, here's the evening's line-up:

--Marian Fontana, author of A Widow's Walk

--Rosemary Moore, author of Side Street

--Martha Southgate, author of Third Girl From the Left

--Wendy Ponte, author of Mothering Magazine's Having a Baby Naturally
