I was flattered to receive an email from the Mark Twain House asking that I plug Michael Moore’s upcoming appearance at UConn. The person who wrote to me must be extremely hard working if she dug down so deep as to find this blog. Anyway, here’s the info, straight from the horse’s mouth:
November 18th at 7:30 p.m. at the Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Connecticut, The Mark Twain House & Museum presents A Pen Warmed Up in Hell Lecture with Michael Moore! Love him or hate him, one cannot deny that Academy Award-winning documentarian Michael Moore inspires passionate feelings in Americans. Moore is the creator of the most successful documentary films of all time including “Roger and Me,” the Oscar-winning “Bowling for Columbine,” the Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or-winner “Fahrenheit 9/11,” “Sicko” and “Capitalism, A Love Story.” An Emmy Award-winner for his television series “The Awful Truth,” he is also a #1 New York Times bestselling author. His latest book “Here Comes Trouble” is a memoir filled with his trademark humor, wit and provocative politics. Derided by many as un-American and similarly hailed by others as an American hero, Moore certainly subscribes to Mark Twain’s maxim, “Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand.”
Tickets – $25, $35, $45, $85 (premium Orchestra seating and private reception in the Jorgensen Gallery with Michael Moore at 5:30 p.m.) To order, call 860.486.4226 or visit jorgensen.uconn.edu
I have to apologize for taking the two days since her email to me to put this up, but my ctblue email account is typically littered with tons of spam comments and political releases from far and wide so any actual email directed to me as a real person gets lost in the shuffle.
