Riveting. Humble. Inspiring. This is how I would describe comedian, writer, and host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah. This week he joined me at NeueHouse, in New York, for an intimate conversation about his memoir Born a Crime, which should be required reading for every single person on the planet. Trevor’s grace, humor (and cheekiness) captivated us all, and it similarly flows effortlessly through the pages of his book which chronicles his experience of growing up in apartheid South Africa. This conversation is guaranteed to open your mind and challenge your perspective, and I hope you will share it and encourage everyone you know to read Trevor’s book.
Thank you Ella Marder, head of cultural programming at NeueHouse, and Dhara Parikh and Barbara Fillon at Random House, for collaborating to make this special event happen.
