Another book about Obama in these dark days isn’t itself all that noteworthy, but the discussion between oral history specialist Brian Abrams—who has already done incredible work capturing histories of Late Night with David Letterman, the defunct trailblazing website Gawker, and even Christmas film Die Hard—and original Wonkette, Friends Like These host, and MPLS-resident (no wonder she spends so much energy trying to find a middle ground, how Minnesotan) Anna Maria Cox sure is. Be sure to get to the bookstore early, liberal book fans will be packing the house. Tuesday, August 7th, 7 PM. Free.Tracy Oxford
