What’s the Story with Daniel Handler and Lemony Snicket? (ALL AGES)

Sat, Nov 11, 2017 from 10:00 am - 11:00 am PST
1037 SW Broadway Portland, OR 97205

Daniel Handler, the author (as Lemony Snicket) of A Series of Unfortunate Events and All The Wrong Questions, and many other books for children, including the new The Bad Mood and the Stick, has also written, under his own name, his first play, Imaginary Comforts, or The Story of the Ghost of the Dead Rabbit, produced this fall at Berkeley Repertory Theatre, as well as six novels for adults. From the “postmodern brilliance” of ASOUE (The Atlantic), which will continue on Netflix this winter, to the philosophical daring of speaking honestly about the desires and drives of teenagers in All the Dirty Parts, Handler will talk with Gilbert Cruz of the The New York Times about how storytelling illuminates every stage of our lives.

For attendees of all ages!
