An Evening with Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author Michael Chabon


12 JUNE 2019 - 7:00 PM / TALK & SIGNING

Michael Chabon - Pops: Fatherhood in Pieces

For the September 2016 issue of GQ, Michael Chabon wrote a piece about accompanying his son Abraham Chabon, then thirteen, to Paris Men’s Fashion Week. Possessed with a precocious sense of style, Abe was in his element chatting with designers he idolized and turning a critical eye to the freshest runway looks of the season; Chabon Sr., whose interest in clothing stops at “thrift-shopping for vintage western shirts or Hermès neckties,” sat idly by, staving off yawns and fighting the impulse that the whole thing was a massive waste of time. Despite his own indifference, however, what gradually emerged as Chabon ferried his son to and from fashion shows was a deep respect for his son’s passion. The piece quickly became a viral sensation.

With the GQ story as its centerpiece, and featuring six additional essays plus an introduction, Pops: Fatherhood in Pieces illuminates the meaning, magic, and mysteries of fatherhood as only Michael Chabon can.
