 When author Michael Lewis became a father, he decided to keep a written record of what happened immediately after the birth of each of his three children. Feeling like a stranger in a strange land, he often felt puzzled at the gap between what he thought he should be feeling and what he actually felt. While he expected to be overcome by joy, he often felt puzzled; expecting to feel worried over a child's illness or behavior, instead he often felt indifferent. Lewis attempts to capture the triumphs, failures, humor, frustration, and exhilaration of being a new father during the first year of each of his three children's lives. And this book is that record. All are welcomed to attend. Books are available at the Dole Branch one month before the book group.
