Greg Fitzsimmons picks up where his parents left off with his own collection of disciplinary letters received during college and throughout his career. Simon & Schuster Adult

It’s probably happened to many people with hyperactive mothers—you’re reorganizing the attic, moving houses or just poking around through old stuff and you come across a box full of letters, ticket stubs and other keepsakes collected over the years commemorating the good, bad, and ugly of you life. Comedian Greg Fitzsimmons came across just such a box, or boxes in his case, that contained disciplinary letters, incident reports, and newspaper clippings that his parents received from teachers & school officials. In his book Dear Mrs. Fitzsimmons Greg picks up where his parents left off with his own collection of letters received during college and throughout his career. Just in time for Thanksgiving, where the best and worst of childhood memories are dragged across the dinner table, Greg & his mother share the trials and tribulations of being in a family without losing your sanity.

Guests:

Greg Fitzsimmons, comedian, writer, actor, radio host, and author of Dear Mrs. Fitzsimmons: Tales of Redemption From an Irish Mailbox

Mrs. Fitzsimmons, Greg’s mother
