Michael Chabon Mystery Solved!

I have a confession to make, I am a Michael Chabon addict. My first Chabon high came from The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay. With spunky Sam Clay and rogue Joe Kavalier as the heroes, I discovered a new passion for comic books or at least the history of them, a new favorite book, and a new author to obsess over. Although K&C still remains my favorite Chabon, that did not stop me from reading five of his other books over the past year. It got so bad, my friend chided me that I must read nothing but Chabon, which I actually did not even find an insult.

My addiction really hit its peak when charismatic Chabon read at GW last year. I wished he could have spoken for longer and signed more of my books. Little did I know, that he would be back less than a year later at Lisner Auditorium on Friday, October 8th at 8pm. However, how to get tickets remained a total enigma.

Luckily the case has been solved. Chabon tickets are actually FREE! Just go to the Lisner box office (from 11am-5pm on Tuesday-Friday), show your GW ID, and get a free ticket for the event (only one per person allowed)! Of course, I rushed over to grab mine and hope you will too.

Oh, the other mystery of the evening, what will Chabon be reading? He will be reading from his latest nonfiction work, Manhood for Amateurs:The Pleasures and Regrets of a Husband, Father, and Son. Which I have a feeling is what he read from last semester. I cannot wait to find out!
