Special Events With Erik Larson and Christopher BuckleyApril 26, 2012
Two huge special events are just around the corner – do you have your tickets yet?
Renowned historical non-fiction author Erik Larson will be joining us on Friday, May 4. His new book, In the Garden of Beasts, is set in Germany in 1933, when a benign man named William E. Dodd took his post as United States ambassador, just as Adolf Hitler began his rise to power. The book tells Dodd’s story, as well as the story of his unfaithful wife – and the impeccably researched story of Hitler’s Germany before World War II.
Thurber Prize for American Humor winner Christopher Buckley is a brilliant political satirist. He will return to the Thurber House stage on Wednesday, May 16. His newest work of satire, They Eat Puppies, Don’t They?, features a Washington lobbyist and his female aide who start a rumor that the Chinese secret service is planning to assassinate the Dalai Lama, in order to push a top secret weapons system through Congress. The series of events that follow are vintage Buckley.
Both events will be held at the Columbus Museum of Art, 480 E. Broad Street. A wine and hors d’oeuvres reception for limited guests will be held before each reading, and tickets are available for the reception and reading, or the reading only.
