2016 – Trevor Noah on Born a Crime Wednesday Nov. 16 @ NeueHouse

As host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah is one of the world’s brightest voices, and provides viewers in America and around the globe with their nightly dose of biting satire.

A collection of eighteen personal essays, Born a Crime tells the story of a mischievous young boy who grows into a restless young man as he struggles to find himself in a world where he was never supposed to exist. The conversation will be hosted by Angela Ledgerwood, host of the literary podcast Lit Up, followed by a book gifting and signing.

  • Yep, it’s Jennifer Egan 😍🤩🤓 LIVE now. Could there be a better way to end 2017 than with the brilliant Pulitzer-winner?! Her novel “Manhattan Beach” is one of my favorite books of the year - it’s totally absorbing, sexy, illuminating and so much more as you will hear from this conversation. Jennifer started researching the book in 2005 and in the mean time wrote “A Visit From the Goon Squad.” In this convo we talk about the anxiety she faced after school, her exhaustive research process and the “quickening” she feels when she’s found a topic that’s not going to leave her alone. Thanks for everyone for listening over the past year. I’ll be taking a month or so off so I can come back with a great lineup for you next year, as well as a beautiful new website and other fun literary goodness. #jenniferegan #bestbooks #manhattanbeach #newyork #literature #books #book #shelfie @simonandschuster @simonbooks #bookspodcast #literaturepodcast
  • The one and only Salman Rushdie is on the pod this week talking about his most recent novel “The Golden House.” We recorded live  @randomhouse ‘s Off The Page event in nyc. Big thanks to @sally_marvin for making this dream of mine come true. Salman Rushdie’s mind knows no bounds and I hope you enjoy listening to it crackle and pop as we talk about his writing, the chaos of this administration, and the uncanny fact that life is stranger than fiction. And... his masterful role on @curbyourlarrydavid. Thank you @salman.rushdie! 💥📕👌#salmanrushdie #thegoldenhouse #bestbooks #literature #notmypresident #books #book #shelfie #curbyourenthusiasm
