Dubbed “the funniest man in America” by the New York Times, Dave Barry explores the twin mysteries of parenthood and families in You Can Date Boys When You’re Forty. In his new release, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author tackles everything from family trips to bat mitzvah parties to accompanying his daughter to a Justin Bieber concert.
Tickets are no longer available for this event, but limited standby seating may be available the evening of the program.

In his latest book, The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap, journalist Matt Taibbi uncovers “the Divide”—the seam in American life where our two most troubling trends, growing wealth inequality and mass incarceration, come together. This divide, Taibbi argues, allows fraud by the hyper-wealthy to go unpunished, while poverty itself is turned into a crime.
Taibbi, a contributing editor for Rolling Stone, is the author of five previous books including the New York Times bestsellers The Great Derangement and Griftopia.
