Jennifer Weiner Lecture
Wednesday, July 15, 2009
Free Library of Philadelphia
1901 Vine St., Philly, PA 19103
FREE (but get there early for good seats)

I paid $35 to go see Jennifer Weiner at Society Hill Synagogue. She is absolutely hilarious in person. She is a masterful, engaging storyteller (and writer). She was worth $35 for the entertainment value alone.

Sample: "When my mom came out (gay) in her late 50s, she really came out. She changed her answering machine and voicemail messages to: 'Hey, it's me. I'm out and I'm proud! Leave a message! Bye!'"

It's a bit expensive but if you're tired of the concerts with good bands where there is no room to dance and/or dancing is discouraged by methodical seating arrangements, check out Kimmel Center's World Music Dance Parties.
