In Defense of Elitism. Humorist Joel Stein with Comedian Karen Bergreen

ZOOM Webinar Author Talk + Q & A

You will receive the Zoom link via email before the event.

Laugh with Joel Stein as he discusses his book In Defense of Elitism, a hilarious take on America’s political divide.
According to Joel, “This is a call to arms for the elite. Not an actual call to arms, since we don’t think people should have those, but metaphoric arms, which are the type of arms that will be useless against the populists’ arms, which are real arms. Which is why I’m not standing up to the populists in person, but here in print, where none of them will know about it.”
