Seriously Funny: Gary Shteyngart
In his memoir, "Little Failure," Gary Shteyngart gives us a moving picture of what it is to straddle two worlds and two cultures. Describing his early childhood in Leningrad and immigrating to the U.S., he paints a revealing portrait of his family, his struggles, his failures, and yes, his triumphs. Shteyngart's humor both moves and tickles us, walking a fine line between the serious and the funny. Daily Show writer and comedian J.R. Havlan will discuss "Little Failure" and the art of finding true-to-life humor.
Thursday, October 30, 6:30 p.m.
