Local Reading: Melissa Fay Greene, aka a Crosscurrents mom

The Samuel family, as featured in No Biking in the House Without a Helmet. That's Seth in the back row, second from the right.

Melissa Fay Greene, mother of Crosscurrents engineer extraordinaire Seth Samuel, has written a memoir about raising four lovely children – then deciding to adopt five more. Though Seth suggested the book be titled "We're Not a Youth Group, Dammit," she in fact chose to call it, "No Biking in the House Without a Helmet." You can hear her read excerpts Wednesday night. // DETAILS: Book Passage Marin, 51 Tamal Vista Blvd.,  Corte Madera, CA 94925 | (415) 927-0960, free!
