Jón Gnarr + Hamilton Nolan
June 19: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
In 2009, comedian and anarchist Jón Gnarr founded the Best Party in order to satirize his country's failing political system. Entering (and winning!) the race for mayor of Reykjavík, Iceland's capital, Jón ran on a platform that promised to get the dinosaurs from Jurassic Park into downtown parks, free towels at public swimming pools, and a "drug-free Parliament by 2020." Visit Strand's rare book room for Jón's firsthand account of his revolutionary win and his serious vision of a more enlightened politics for the future!
Jón will be joined in conversation with Gawker’s Hamilton Nolan. Hamilton is one of Gawker’s longest tenured writers.
