Tuesday April 18 – Kelly Oxford and I will discuss her new book of essays, and more at Neuehouse at 6.45pm – 8.00pm. Whether it is with the kind of Tweets that lead Rolling Stone to name her one of the Funniest People on Twitter or creating the hashtag #NotOkay, where millions of women came together to share their stories of sexual assault, Kelly Oxford has a unique, razor-sharp perspective on modern life. The New York Times Bestselling author is joined by Angela Ledgerwood in this intimate conversation on her new book of essays, When You Find Out the World is Against You.

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. With his new book, Born a Crime (released November 15), Noah turns his focus inward, giving readers a deeply personal, heartfelt, and humorous look at the world that shaped him. 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.
Wednesday, November 16th from 9-9:30PM NeueHouse Madison Square 110 East 25th Street
