We Can't Always Get Out of the Way of Storms, but Since in This Case We Could, Ayad Akhtar is now Appearing on Friday, January 13, 7 pm, at Boswell.

One always takes a risk in Milwaukee with winter events. And that's not just true about Milwaukee--don't forget that the East Coast got clobbered with a giant storm this past October. Snow happens, and for the most part, we deal with it.

But Ayad Akhtar's evening at Boswell for American Dervish is not just any event. It's his hometown launch. While we know that the weather forecasters tend to emphasize the worst, it's evening rush hour that's expected to be the messiest, in terms of wind and visibility. And I don't want to be panicking about friends and family on the road.

The good news is that we're able to move this event to Friday, January 13, 7 pm, when the storm should be over. You can laugh along with me when it turns out we only get one inch.

Still can't make it? We can get a first edition copy signed for you.
