JOHN LITHGOW In conversation On-Stage Live with Michael Krasny
The Kanbar Center for the Performing Arts & Copperfield\\\'s Books present JOHN LITHGOW In conversation On-Stage Live with Michael Krasny.
Osher Marin JCC, 200 N. San Pedro Road, San Rafael
Event Description


Award-winning actor and best-selling author John Lithgow discusses his life, career and new book: DUMPTY: The Age of Trump in Verse in an on-stage conversation with KQED Forum\\\'s Michael Krasny, in association with Copperfield\\\'s Books at the Osher Marin JCC in San Rafael.
In DUMPTY, Lithgow wields a whip-smart, satirical pen in this poetic diatribe chronicling the last few years in politics. With lacerating wit, he takes readers verse by verse through the history of Donald Trump\\\'s presidency, lampooning the likes of Betsy DeVos, Anthony Scaramucci, Scott Pruitt, Paul Manafort, Trump\\\'s doctors, and many others. Illustrated from cover to cover with Lithgow\\\'s never-before-seen line drawings, the poems collected in DUMPTY draw inspiration from A. A. Milne, Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Mother Goose, and many more. A YUGE feat of laugh-out-loud lyrical storytelling, this hilarious and timely volume is bound to bring joy to poetry lovers, political junkies, and Lithgow fans.
Political junkies and literary fans, rejoice!
DUMPTY: The Age of Trump in Verse is a YUGE candidate for books most likely to entertain this fall...
