Get a signed copy of our latest book, Emily Post's Etiquette - The Centennial Edition, for yourself or to give as a gift, and support Vermont's independent bookstore Bridgeside Books.
On today’s show, we take your questions on hosting trouble with traditional gender roles, handling invitations when you’re overseas and grieving, a short question about being a new grandparent, and how to handle family names on a wedding invitation envelope. For Awesome Etiquette Community Members, our question is about a moment of awkwardness around an up-in-the-air wedding invitation. Plus your most excellent feedback, etiquette salute, and a postscript on parenting don’ts from Emily Post’s 1940s parent book Children Are People. All that's coming up!
