The former cast member of "Saturday Night Live" and author of If It’s Not One Thing, It’s Your Mother takes us into the heart of her family.

Sharing her painfully funny adventures in single motherhood and religion, nannies, pets, schools, and the birds and the bees, she imparts a cutting-edge, contemporary take on parenthood in today’s absurd world.

Julia Sweeney will be selling and signing copies of 
If It's Not One Thing, It's Your Mother following the event.


The Funny People series is endowed by Buddy Teich.
