  • CA – No Land’s Man Signing

    Mandvi

    Aasif Mandvi appears in conversation with Reza Aslan on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 at 7:30 pm! Reserve free tickets at the link…

    ABOUT THE PROGRAM

    Presented as part of Book Soup at the Skirball, comedian Aasif Mandvi (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) discusses his new memoir, No Land’s Man, with writer and scholar Reza Aslan.

    If you’re an Indo-Muslim-British-American actor who has spent more time in bars than mosques over the past few decades, turns out it’s a little tough to explain who you are or where you are from. In No Land’s Man Mandvi explores this and other conundrums through humorous stories about his family, ambition, desire, and culture that range from dealing with his brunch-obsessed father to his high school career as a Michael Jackson impersonator to joining a Bible study group in order to seduce a nice Christian girl to improbably becoming America’s favorite Muslim/Indian/Arab/brown/doctor correspondent on The Daily Show.

    Mandvi’s hilarious and passionate description of his journey will resonate with anyone who has had to navigate the murky space between lands. Or anyone who really loves brunch.

    A book signing follows the program.

    CA – Habibi Signing

    Craig Thompson speaks and signs at the Skirball Cultural Center on Thursday, May 10, 2012 at 8:00 p.m.

    Press Release:

    Award-winning graphic novelist Craig Thompson comes to the Skirball to discuss his latest and highly praised graphic novel Habibi in a slide-illustrated talk.

    Sprawling across an epic landscape of desert harems and modern industrial clutter, Habibi tells the tale of Dodola and Zam, refugee child slaves bound to each other by chance, circumstance, and love. We follow them as their lives unfold together and apart and as they struggle to make a place for themselves in a world fueled by fear and greed.

    At once contemporary and timeless, Habibi gives us a love story of astounding resonance. It is simultaneously a parable about our relationship to the natural world, the cultural divide between first and third worlds, the common heritage of Christianity and Islam, and the magic of storytelling.

    A Q&A and book signing will follow the program.
