@ Busboys and Poets 14th & V: Sara Benincasa - DC Trip

Tuesday, November 3, 2015 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

An award-winning comedian, Benincasa made her literary debut with Agorafabulous, a memoir relating her struggle with agoraphobia that was at once illuminating about a disabling malady and very funny. She moved into fiction with Great, and now her second novel takes on the classic high school class trip to the nation’s capital, focusing on an inexperienced teacher trying to manage both her students and her love life, and on a pair of sophomores eager to try anything.

Benincasa will be in conversation with Dave Zirin, The Nation’s sports editor and the author of books including A People’s History of Sports and Brazil’s Dance With the Devil.
