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.
