Celia Rivenbark is kinda like the Highland Park soccer mom equivalent of David Sedaris. And whereas Sedaris has a popular collection of essays suggesting that you Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, Rivenbanks latest assortment of sassy, Southern-fried social commentary instructs readers to Stop Dressing Your Six-year-old Like a Skank. Sound advice, indeed. This book is a welcome addition to any home library that includes such works as If You're Going to Own That Hideous Monstrosity of a Car You Should at Least Know How to Drive It, Who Told You That It Was Acceptable to Wear Ball-Hugging Gym Shorts to the Grocery Store? and, of course, Put Away Your BlackBerry and Order Your Iced Latte Before I Rip Off Your Head and Pee Down Your Throat. Celia Rivenbark appears at Borders Books & Music, 5500 Greenville Ave., at 7 p.m. Thursday. Call 214-739-1166.
Thu., Sept. 28, 7 p.m.
