Lee Papa Presents an Evening of Stories About Political Awakenings
Housing Works’ Bookstore Café (126 Crosby St., Manhattan)
7pm
Free

Growing up in the swamps of Louisiana’s Cajun country, Lee Papa was a “poor white bigot” raised on a solid diet of William F. Buckley, Ronald Reagan and “gay-fearful Neanderthal retardation.” Today, he’s a playwriting professor by day and the wildly popular, unapologetically liberal blogger known as “The Rude Pundit” by night. How — and when — does one suddenly figure out they’re a liberal? Join Lee Papa, political humorist David Rees, Sady Doyle, media writer Rachel Sklar and contributors to The Nation, The Daily Show, and more, as OR Books celebrates the release of Papa’s The Rude Pundit’s Almanack with a night of political origin stories.
