In 2011 Adam Mansbach was just another novelist, the sort whose books had titles like The End of the Jews and Angry Black White Boy. But then the young father made a joke on Twitter, and that joke spiraled into #1 New York Times bestseller Go The Fuck To Sleep. The cuss-filled picture book has since been translated into over forty languages. There was also the award-winning video Wake The Fuck Up, made for the 2012 Obama campaign. Speaking politics, Mansbach’s talk at Brown is entitled “Race, Profanity, Literature and Satire: Going the F*ck to Sleep in Donald Trump’s America.”
