Nearly everyone thinks his or her own family is “crazy” or has at least one or two members who stand out from the crowd in a unique way. The latest Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Crazy Family, offers a collection of 101 stories of wacky, yet lovable, relatives.
Amy Newmark says, “What I loved about these stories is how much the writers truly care about their family members. Every story is filled with love and admiration for that eccentric aunt, that strict dad with a heart of gold, that flighty grandma who ultimately imparts the best advice, or that quirky mom who helps a family have fun together. As I read the stories, I felt even more strongly the bonds of family and appreciated my own.”
What a great gift these stories are, and a wonderful way to welcome a new family member, at an engagement party or shower, or to say “I love you” to an existing one on Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.
Join Amy Newmark, the publisher, and editor-in-chief for Chicken Soup and me on Tuesday, April 24, 10-11 A.M. CT US. Amy and I will be having a heartwarming and hilarious conversation about everyone else’s families!
