New Yorker in LA
Right on the heels of LAist's discovery that Greg Allen has been archiving New Yorker.com articles, The New Yorker writer Hendrik Hertzberg graces us, via the Writer's Bloc series, with his presence on Thursday, August 5, 2004 at the Writer's Guild Theatre, 135 South Doheny Drive in Beverly Hills, at 7:30 PM.
Hendrik Hertzberg, a regular contributor to The New Yorker, has a new book titled Politics, which is a collection of "observations and arguments: 1966-2003" that he'll discuss with Los Angeles writer/critic John Powers, whose new book, "Sore Winners (And The Rest of Us) in George Bush's America" has just been released. Powers appears on NPR's "Fresh Air," and contributes regularly to the LA Weekly.
Why, it will be a regular BashBushapalooza!
