As part of The Curran's newly announced "Show & Tell" series, Edward Snowden will be doing a live (presumably via Skype) conversation with KQED's Michael Krasny on the anniversary of last November's election. But perhaps more amusingly, on November 18, Alec Baldwin and co-author Kurt Andersen will be doing a live reading of and discussion about their new satirical "presidential memoir" titled Donald J. Trump: You Can't Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story Of My Fantastic First Year As President.
The Snowden talk happens November 8, and tickets just went on sale, starting at $39, but $85 VIP tickets come with cocktails a special "private moment" with Snowden.
But tickets are likely to go really fast for the November 18 event, in which Baldwin and "America's foremost Trump scholar" Kurt Andersen will be discussing "the current political and cultural climates, [taking] audience questions," and Baldwin will likely spend the evening in Trump drag, like he has in his Emmy-winning appearances on Saturday Night Live and on the cover of the "memoir" itself. "Until Donald Trump publishes the ultimate account of his entire four or eight or one-and-a-half years in the White House, the definitive chronicle will be You Can't Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story Of My Fantastic First Year As President," they write. The co-authors will be signing books at the event as well (the book gets released November 7).
The first guest in the Show & Tell series is actually Fault of Our Stars novelist John Green, who'll be appearing October 31 to discuss his new novel Turtles All the Way Down. He'll be in conversation with his brother, Hank Green.
