Tues., Feb. 28, 7:30 pm: Andy Borowitz with Patton Oswalt SOLD OUT

We are now in the thick of campaign season. Whom do we trust to report all the news about primaries, campaigns and the mood swings of voters around the country? Only one journalist gives us the news, and the news behind the news, like Andy Borowitz. Perhaps one of the most important reporters on the election beat today, Andy distills the truth from the big story, and presents it to the American public in a way that the candidates can’t: truthfully.

Tues., March 13, 7:30 pm: Jonathan Safran Foer with David Ulin on the New American Haggadah

Each year, as Passover rolls around, many of us turn to our bookshelves and wonder if something better has turned up in the world of haggadas.  Something interesting. Perhaps something meaningful.  Perhaps something that resonates more than the worn out haggadas that we’ve used for the past 10, 15, even 50 years.  When a new haggadah hits the stands, it’s reason to take notice.
