Dalton Conley “Parentology” Book Signing @ Boulder Book Store
Apr 25 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Dalton Conley will speak about and sign his new book, Parentology, on Friday, April 25th at 7:30pm.

About the Book:
All parenting is about experimenting. Now comes a book from a real scientist who has taken that experimentation further and deployed every last piece of data on his own kids so that the rest of us can benefit from the results. Emboldened by cutting-edge research, Dalton Conley makes a series of unorthodox parenting moves. Parentology hilariously reports the results of Conley’s experiments as a father, demonstrating that, ultimately, what matters most is love and engagement. He teaches you everything you need to know about the latest literature on parenting.

Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased in advance, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.
