No Kidding Book Event

Please join Green Apple in welcoming some contributors to No Kidding: Women Writes on Bypassing Parenthood. On Wedesday, September 25th at 7:00 pm we will hear stories from Andrea Carla MichaelsBetsy Salkind, and Bernadette Luckett.

In No Kidding, comedy writer Henriette Mantel tackles the topic of actually not having kids. This fascinating collection features a star-studded group of contributors—including Margaret Cho, Wendy Liebman, Laurie Graff, and other accomplished, funny women—writing about why they opted out of motherhood. Whether their reasons have to do with courage, apathy, monetary considerations, health issues, or something else entirely, the essays featured in the pages of No Kidding honestly (and humorously) delve into the minds of women who have chosen what they would call a more sane path.

No Kidding is funny. I laughed out loud, but I knew with Henriette, there’d be more to it than just laughs. Choosing not to have children is unfathomable to me, making this book all the more fascinating.”

—Rosie O’Donnell          


“The No Kidding essays made me laugh, made me cry, made me wanna give my kid back.”
