Stepdog Book Launch at Instituto Cervantes

“Stepdog” officially came out in the world in balmy 70-degree weather at Instituto Cervantes, a Spanish government cultural center that serves as a peaceful oasis in the frenzy of midtown Manhattan. The center has classrooms for Spanish language classes, a gallery and an auditorium where my colleague at the NY Times, Janny Scott, author of the biography┬á “A Singular Woman,” about President Obama’s late mother, interviewed me on the challenges of stepmotherhood. We later moved on to the Instituto’s lovely garden for the book party.

MN: “The Stepdog event was so much fun, Eddie. Everyone wanted to know what I learned after 10 years living with you.”

SD: “Never underestimate the dog.”
