An Unforgettable Night of Jewish Humor with Calvin Trillin, Patricia Marx, Adam Gopnik, Michael Krasny, and Jeffrey Toobin

Feb 23, 2017

Yiddish novelist Isaac Bashevis Singer once told San Francisco-based NPR talk host Michael Krasny that “Jews suffer from every disease except amnesia.”

This unforgettable evening features 4 of The New Yorker’s leading writers, Calvin Trillin, Patricia Marx, Adam Gopnik and Jeffrey Toobin, in conversation with Krasny, author of the bestselling book, Let There Be Laughter: A Treasury of Great Jewish Humor and What It All Means, about which Andy Borowitz said, “what’s not to love?” There will be a joyous feast of jokes, and commentary on the historical and cultural implications. You will enjoy and learn, even if you aren’t Jewish.
