Michael Ian Black + Julia Turner

Thursday January 21: 7:00PM 8:00PM

As a veteran stand-up comic, an actor in beloved movies and series like The State, Stella, Wet Hot American Summer, and more, and a New York Times best-selling author, Michael Ian Black has seen a lot. Which is why the surprise of seeing middle age rear its ugly head in the form of a grim medical diagnosis was so, well, surprising. In Navel Gazing: True Tales of Bodies, Mostly Mine (but also my mom's, which I know sounds weird), he trains his irreverent comedic eye on the foibles of the forty-and-up set. For a different perspective on middle-aged man in general, and on one very funny middle-aged man specifically, join Michael and Slate’s editor-in-chief and Culture Gabfest co-host Julia Turner for a conversation in the Rare Book Room.
