Thurber Birthday Gala

Save the Date:
The 2014 Thurber Birthday Gala

Thursday, December 4, 2014


Save the date for a special evening of humor for James Thurber's 120th birthday! The evening will feature Dan Zevin, the winner of the 2013 Thurber Prize for American Humor for his book Dan Gets a Minivan: Life at the Intersection of Dude and Dad. The evening will include cocktails, dinner, a raffle with fantastic prizes, and lots of laughter. More information about this celebration will be coming soon!

Dan Zevin has followed his readers through each phase of life, from post-college coping (Entry-Level Life) to tying the knot (The Nearly-wed Handbook) to developing a disturbing new interest in lawn care and wine tastings (Uncool). And that was all before he had kids. Which leads us back to this minivan situation, detailed in his Thurber Prize-winning book. Dan has been a comic commentator for NPR, a humor columnist for The New York Times, and a contributor to print and digital publications including Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, Maxim, Details, Real Simple, and Parents.
