DC – An Evening with Denis Leary

Denis Leary appears at Sixth & I to present his new book Why We Don’t Suck on Tuesday, November 7, 2017 at 7:00 PM.

Are you a “Right Wing Nutjob” or a “Left Wing Snowflake?” Either way, in this third volume of a series that includes Why We Suck and Suck on This, Year wants to enlist you in his campaign to Make America Laugh Again. Proving that satire can be non-partisan, Leary, creator and star of the FX comedy series Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, takes aim at both sides of the aisle, along with their media sounding boards, CNN (the Clinton News Network) and Fox’s Fair and Balanced Republican Report. With equal doses of sarcasm and common sense, he pokes fun at all we hold dear, from Twitter and Instagram to gluten-free diets and our endless thirst for fame. This is social criticism at its sharpest and funniest.

All copies of Why We Don’t Suck will be pre-signed. This event does not include a public signing. Tickets available from Politics & Prose at the link…

DC – You Can’t Spell America Without Me Presentation

Alec Baldwin appears in conversation with author Kurt Andersen on Tuesday, November 14th at 7:00 PM to present You Can’t Spell America Without Me. Presented by GWU and Politics and Prose. Tickets available at the link…

Working the special magic of political satire, this memoir unfolds in a time when the Trump presidency is history. America’s foremost Trump scholar and its foremost Trump impersonator, Kurt Andersen and Alec Baldwin, join forces to channel Trump’s reminisces on how he made America great again. Building on Baldwin’s wildly popular Trump impressions on Saturday Night Live, the novelist and actor together present the future former chief executive’s thoughts on White House protocol, world leaders, his family, the media, and much more.

Alec Baldwin and Kurt Andersen will sign a limited number of copies of You Can’t Spell America Without Me before the event begins.

When Will Call opens, a limited number of ticket holders will receive the opportunity to enter the signing line. Access to the signing line is first come, first served. We may be able to offer standby access to the signing as well, but entry is not guaranteed.

There will be no signing after the program, and signed books will not be available for pre-order.

All books and tickets will be available at will call at 6 p.m. the evening of the event.

Politics and Prose will not have books or tickets available for pick up prior to the evening of the event.

DC – The Silence of Our Friends Signing

Comments Off on DC – The Silence of Our Friends Signing

This event has been canceled and will not be rescheduled.

Mark Long, Jim Demonakos, and Nate Powell sign at Politics and Prose on Saturday, February 25, 2012 at 1:00 pm.

In this remarkable confluence of talents, Powell’s graphic artistry joins Long’s true story and Demonakos’s narrative skills to depict an episode of the civil rights struggle. In 1967, five black college students in Texas were accused of killing a white policeman. A white family from a notoriously racist neighborhood not only spoke in their defense, but succeeded in getting the charges against them dropped.

DC – The Odious Ogre Signing

Jules Feiffer and Norton Juster sign on September 26, 2010 from 11:00am – 12:00pm.

From the remarkable duo that brought us The Phantom Toll Booth some 49 years ago, this new book features a horrible, terrible ogre. He deploys big words to keep control over his kingdom, crushing his subjects and never being polite–until one day a maiden teaches him a lesson he never forgets. The collaborators blend witty text and perfect illustrations for a humorous tale with a happy ending. (Ages 4-8)
