Barney Frank @ University Book Store-March 30

March 25th, 2015 · No Comments

Come meet Mr. Barney Frank.

Apparently– a source says– he is America’s smartest, feistiest, and funniest politician. Show up and see for yourself.

Frank is described as a “disheveled, intellectually combative gay Jew with a thick New JerseyMassachusetts accent” who has “become one of the most effective politicians of his time?” He has written a book called Frank:A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage. It’s an autobiography.

The book offers a guide to how political change really happens. Frank is the first member of Congress to voluntarily come out as gay and has been a major player in the struggle for personal freedom and economic fairness for more than four decades. This is an opportunity to hear him in conversation with Eric Liu (Citizen University), and rumor has it, the Mayor will be there!

When: March 30, doors open at 6, starts at 7pm
Where: University Temple United Methodist Church
Cost: $27 – each ticket admits 2 and includes a copy of Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage
Tickets can be purchased at Brown Paper Tickets.
