Ask Roulette with Robert Krulwich of Radiolab & Other Special Guests
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:
Joe Garden, features editor at The Onion
Dave Hill, author of Tasteful Nudes
Robert Krulwich of Radiolab
Jenna Wortham of the New York Times (aka @JennyDeluxe)
house band Eli Bolin of Story Pirates and Sesame Street
