My Crazy Jewish Mother
with Kate Siegel, author of Mother, Can You Not?
Wednesday, March 29 • 6:30 p.m.
Based on the wildly popular Instagram account, @CrazyJewishMom, Mother, Can You Not? is Kate Siegel’s hilarious essay collection about life with the woman who redefined the term “helicopter mom.” Siegel’s mother drove her so crazy with dozens of texts each day that she decided to broadcast their hysterical conversations on Instagram. She shares the laugh-out-loud stories behind the texts and pays tribute to her mother’s “no-holds-barred” brand of parenting, which makes for great entertainment.
We promise you’ll laugh, you’ll relate, and you’ll be grateful it’s not your mom setting up online dating profiles for you; or berating your significant other about “buying the cow”; or begging you to freeze your eggs before it’s too late.
The mother-daughter dynamic is a balancing act. Who else can proudly insist you’re perfect while making you question every career, fashion and relationship decision you have ever made? We invite you to commiserate, roll your eyes and laugh lovingly at the lengths to which our mothers go to “better our lives.”
