BOOKS AND BEER: National Public Radio correspondent Dan Zevin will discuss his latest book, “Dan Gets a Minivan: Life at the Intersection of Dude and Dad,” Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center, 333 Nahanton St. in Newton.
Zevin, who is known for his humorous depictions of life as a parent and stay-at-home dad, will be joined by Rabbi Joseph Meszler, whose book “A Man’s Responsibility: A Jewish Guide to Being a Son, a Partner in Marriage, a Father and a Community Leader” is a provocative look at men’s spiritual growth.
A craft-beer tasting, sponsored by Homebrew Emporium of Cambridge, will follow the presentation. Tickets are $8 and can be purchased at www.bostonjcc.org/bookfair or 617-965-5226.
