Best-selling author and humorist Shalom Auslander is an anxious guy with a dark sense of humor. An acclaimed novelist (Hope: A Tragedy) and memoirist (Foreskin's Lament), he had no experience working in TV before he created the Showtime series HAPPYish. And now he's running the whole show. How does that make him feel? Come here him talk at the Washington DCJCC and you'll find out. (Here's a hint: he may not be ecstatic to be out of his bubble -- but he's happy-ish.) Tickets include the Literary Festival closing night dessert reception.
