There are many ways to make it onto the New York Times' best-seller list. For Adam Mansbach, the secret lay in writing a bedtime story not for kids, but for their parents: 2011's "Go the F--- to Sleep" (Google it for a priceless video of Samuel L. Jackson reading the book aloud). Now, Mansbach has teamed up with comedy writer and producer Alan Zweibel to pen "Benjamin Franklin: Huge Page in My ... !," a middle-grades novel involving a stupid extra-credit assignment, a really embarrassing stepfather and a very surprising pen pal. Mansbach and Zweibel will appear at Menlo Park's Kepler's Books, 1010 El Camino Real, tonight, Thursday, Sept. 10, at 7:30 p.m. Join them for an evening of beer, snacks and laugh-out-loud humor. You might want to leave the kids at home for this one. Tickets are $10. Go to keplers.com or call 650-324-4321.
