Leving will be discussing and signing his latest book, 'How to Be a Good Divorced Dad,' at the National Families and Fathers 17th Annual Conference at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Los Angeles, California. He will also be sharing critical information from his book as part of his lecture as a keynote speaker at the same event. 'This is a pain-filled book that offers good advice about how to preserve a family born of a marriage that has failed. It's a book that is, unfortunately, more and more needed,' wrote late Cardinal Francis George of the Archdiocese of Chicago in his endorsement letter. Leving's book, 'How to Be a Good Divorced Dad,' is a must-have resource that presents essential advice for divorced or divorcing dads of any age, background and marital history. The book is filled with practical ideas for staying connected with children and dealing with ex-wives and in some cases a new girlfriend or the wife's new boyfriend-during the divorce and afterward. Leving's book is an essential reading for the millions of American fathers routinely excluded from their children's lives by a biased system in which greed and Retribution too often overwhelm compassion and concern. About Jeffery Leving Jeffery M. Leving has been recognized by government leaders (including the last three U.S. Presidents and the Illinois House of Representatives), private industry, his peers, and non-profit agencies. His latest book, 'How to be a Good Divorced Dad,' received praise from President Barack Obama, and was endorsed by the late Cardinal Francis George of the Archdiocese of Chicago.

BWW Review: A True King Rises with KING LEAR at Elements Theatre
by Kristen Morale - Aug 17, 2016

The truth be told, I have neither read nor seen performed Shakespeare's King Lear, and was therefore as unfamiliar with the plot and its characters as basically anyone can possibly be; I suppose it wasn't mandatory reading when I went to school, for what reason I cannot possibly imagine. Although, I have always loved a good play or musical with traces of a tragic story at its core - a plot that is both trying on the actors and audience and therefore simply beautiful in how you are compelled to react to something with so much depth and significance. Having just seen King Lear at the Elements Theatre Company, not only was I introduced to a new theater in addition to a play I always wished to learn more about, but in such a way that created both a wonderful first impression of and precedent for this - nay, any - future Shakespearean production I plan to see. Even though this show is one of the more tragic ones you are ever bound to see, it really is a true king of a performance to behold. (more...)

BWW Review: Norbert Leo Butz Does His 'Girls, Girls, Girls' Proud at Feinstein's/54 Below

'I hope you're not here to be entertained.' Norbert Leo Butz was all about managing expectations as he kicked off his week-long stint at Feinstein's/54 Below on August 5, though he had no reason to be worried.

Motley Crue reference aside, the title actually stems from the fact that Butz is constantly surrounded by women in his life, from his wife and three daughters, to his manager, to his 17 nieces.
