Ask Roulette with Kurt Andersen, Julie Klausner & Maria Popova
Housing Works’ Bookstore Café (126 Crosby St., Manhattan)
During Ask Roulette, strangers ask each other any question they want, big or small, in front of a live audience. It’s not as intimidating as it sounds. In fact, it’s built on trust — you can only ask a question once you’ve answered one. If you prefer, you can just be part of the crowd.
Questions are serious or silly, and answers are short or long. Over the course of the evening, you’ll get unexpected connections, surprising anecdotes, and honest conversation. You’ll also laugh.
With special guests:
Maria Popova (The Brain Picker, who spends her days finding amazing things for you to marvel at)
Julie Klausner is the host of How Was Your Week and author of I Don’t Care About Your Band
Kurt Andersen (host of Studio 360 and all-around renaissance man)
