Most of us who are raising young children in 2014 are grappling with a lot of challenging questions. How do we raise our children in the age of social media? What will become of all the perilous and seemingly ubiquitous bloodshed that’s ever before us? What will our tenuous planet look like when our babies are all grown? Balderdash, all of it.
On Saturday, September 20, authors R. Brad Snyder and Marc Engelsgjerd present What Every Child Needs to Know About Punk Rock and What Every Child Needs to Know About Elvis Presley, at Phoenix’s Changing Hands Bookstore, 300 West Camelback Road, at 11 a.m. Two ‘interactive musical exploration’ books that harness all the angst and beauty of the world as shown through the lens of Rock N’ Roll, a harrowing yet hopeful muse. It’s actually kinda perfect for helping that inquisitive kiddo to grapple with the bigger picture, if you think about it. Then again, don’t think about it, just go. The all-ages event is free. Visit www.changinghands.com or call 602-274-0067 for details.
