You might have seen Laurie Gelman at the East Hampton Library’s Authors Night earlier this month. Now you can get her debut novel, Class Mom, at a local bookstore near you. Class Mom is a clever take on a year in the life of a kindergarten class mom, Jen Dixon. An old flame, a hyper-sensitive “allergy mom,” a surprisingly sexy kindergarten teacher and an impossible-to-please Real Housewife-wannabe all cause problems at every turn. Class Mom is a brilliant send-up of the petty and surprisingly cutthroat terrain of “parent politics.” You can also meet Gelman on Wednesday, August 30 at 5 p.m. at BookHampton in East Hampton. bookhampton.com

Are you itching for a new pair of underwear? SwampButt Performance Underwear, made from fabrics that allow for the wicking and quick evaporation of sweat from the wearer’s back quarters, is perfect for summer—especially those last days of summer while you’re sitting in a hot school classroom. While there’s no scientific proof that dryer hindquarters equal higher grades, it makes sense that it would. The underwear is woven to allow more exposed surface area for faster drying and to allow the maximum amount of air to pass in and out, especially between the thighs. Get five pairs for the price of four right now at swampbutt.com.
