John Hodgman - Vacationland: True Stories from Painful Beaches

Wednesday Nov. 1st 6:00 pm
Ticketed Event

In conversation with Ken Reid.

Buy tickets HERE. This event will take place at the Coolidge Corner Theatre.

Although his career as a bestselling author and correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart was founded on fake news and invented facts, in 2016 that routine didn’t seem as funny to John Hodgman anymore. Everyone is doing it now.

Disarmed of falsehood, he was left only with the awful truth: John Hodgman is an older white male monster with bad facial hair, wandering like a privileged Sasquatch through three wildernesses: the hills of Western Massachusetts where he spent much of his youth; the painful beaches of Maine that want to kill him (and some day will); and the metaphoric haunted forest of middle age that connects them.

Each ticket includes admission to John Hodgman’s event and 1 copy of Vacationland. Tickets available online and in-store.
