Tracy Beckerman 

Lost in Suburbia

Thursday, August 26th, 7 pm Zoom




Join us as we welcome author Tracy Beckerman, syndicated humor columnist of LOST IN SUBURBIA®, and LOST IN MIDLIFE®. Tracy is also the author of the books, "Rebel without a Minivan" and "Lost in Suburbia: a Momoir,” and her soon-to-be-released book, “Barking at the Moon: A Story of Life, Love, and Kibble,” coming June 29, 2021.

When this award-winning author relocated from the city to become a suburban stay-at-home mom, she felt like she lost her identity. Her descent from cool city chick to uncool suburban frau finally hit bottom the day that she got stopped by a cop while she was driving her son to school in her bathrobe. The officer said, ‘I guess I don’t need to give you a ticket for making an illegal left turn, but I definitely should give you a ticket for driving in an ugly bathrobe.’"  Between that, and the realization that the mom jeans she had started wearing made her butt look so big astronauts could see it from the International Space Station, spurred Tracy to write  Lost in Suburbia: A Momoir: How I Got Pregnant, Lost Myself, and Got My Cool Back in the New Jersey Suburbs.

Her new book, "Barking at the Moon: A Story of Life, Love, and Kibble,” picks up where "Lost in Suburbia" leaves off. Undeterred by their inability to keep a houseplant alive, the Beckermans decide their family just isn’t complete without a dog. But when Riley comes into their lives, insanity ensues. From chewing up the carpets to stealing the family’s underwear, Riley is a one-dog wrecking ball.  But he is also a dog that is sweet, goofy, and completely lovable. It’s a story that will touch your heart, make you laugh, and remind you that dog fur in your food is a small price to pay for having a dog in your life.



When she’s not busy writing her humor column, folding laundry, and cleaning up after the dog, Tracy loves to speak at writers’ conferences, schools, and Sisterhood events. Please reserve Thursday, August 26 on your calendar now!
