The father-son team of Bill Geist (CBS News' "Sunday Morning") and Willie Geist (NBC News "Today" and MSNBC's "Morning Joe") will share stories of their relationship described their book, "Good Talk, Dad: The Birds and the Bees...and Other Conversations We Forgot to Have" at a Club Book Rap on Thursday, June 5, at 2 p.m. in the First Amendment Lounge.

The book, written in a back-and-forth banter style, is an extended conversation on everything from music and sports to summer camp, driving lessons, family life and other topics. After Bill went public with his struggles with Parkinson's disease, the Geists decided to collaborate on the book so their children and grandchildren would have a record of their special bond.

Register here. Tickets are $5 NPC members and $10 for the public. The admission fee is waived when Club members preorder a copy of the book. The event is a fundraiser for the National Press Club Journalism Institute. Books must be purchased through the NPC. No outside books or memorabilia permitted. All sales are final.
