Free Library of Philadelphia - Central Library, Friday, May 15, 2015 at 7:30pm
Christopher Buckley is the pen name of Christopher Buckley. He divides his time between the bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and the koi pond, which serves as a sushi bar for the benefit of herons. When not cursing herons, he plants expensive bulbs for the winter nourishment of the abundant local squirrel population. His next book is Game of Drones, a candid and sure-to-be-controversial account of his experiences deploying miniature unmanned aerial vehicles in his yard “for purposes of deterrence and, to be honest, revenge.” (added from Simon & Schuster)… (more)

Free Library of Philadelphia - Christopher Buckley - But Enough About You
Joseph Fox Bookshop, Thursday, May 15 at 7:30pm
But Enough About You Christopher Buckley “One of the funniest writers in the English language” according to Tom Wolfe, Christopher Buckley is the author of 15 books, including Thank You for Smoking, Little Green Men, and Supreme Courtship. The recipient of the Washington Irving Medal for Literary Excellence and the Thurber Prize for American Humor, Buckley served as chief speechwriter to Vice President George H.W. Bush, and the American political machine is the primary target of his satire. As Janet Maslin wrote in one New York Times review, “By now, just about every species of political huckster has been treated to Mr. Buckley’s style of prescient ridicule, yet political life ceaselessly tosses him bait.” In his new essay collection, Buckley tackles a wide range of subjects with distinctive wit and insight. Parkway Central Library 1901 Vine Street Philadelphia, PA 19103 (between 19th and 20th Streets on the Parkway) This is a FREE event; no tickets or reservations are required. For more information, please call 215-567-4341, or click here
