CA – The Grouchy Historian Signing

Ed Asner and Ed Weinberger appear at the Santa Monica Library on Saturday, December 16, 2017 at 3:00 PM to present their new book, The Grouchy Historian: An Old-Time Lefty Defends Our Constitution Against Right-Wing Hypocrites and Nutjobs.

For decades, Ed Asner has entertained audiences with his film and television roles, most notably as cantankerous news editor Lou Grant on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Now, with political turmoil roiling the waves in virtually every aspect of American life, Ed and his co-author Ed. Weinberger wade into the debate with the new book The Grouchy Historian: An Old-Time Lefty Defends Our Constitution Against Right-Wing Hypocrites and Nutjobs. In his typically irascible form, Asner “leads the charge for liberals to reclaim the Constitution from the right-wingers who use it as their justification for doing whatever terrible thing they want to do, which is usually to comfort the comfortable and afflict the afflicted. It’s about time someone gave them hell and explained that progressives can read, too.”

This event is ticketed. Free tickets for auditorium seating will be released one hour prior to program. Only one ticket per guest will be released, and guest must be present to receive a ticket. Seating is limited and on a first arrival basis. A book sale and signing follows.
