A Lion in the Snow: Essays on a Father's Journey Home.  When his wife was pregnant, James M. Chesbro he felt more like a son, still grieving over the early loss of his own father, rather than a prepared expectant-dad. In these essays, Chesbro finds himself disoriented and bewildered by fatherhood again and again as he explores the maddening moments that provide occasions for new understandings about our children and us.

James M. Chesbro’s work has appeared in The Writer’s Chronicle, America, The Washington Post, Brain, Child Magazine, Essay Daily, and The Huffington Post.

This program is co-sponsored by Friends in the City (FitC) and the Philadelphia City Institute Library, and will be held in the meeting room on the library’s lower level. We regret there is no elevator.
