Bipartisanship at the Reading Room

A Democrat and a Republican unite for an epic cross-country journey to get a picture of the citizens that make-up this great nation. No it's not a movie, although we would have liked to follow this pair around the USA. Daughter of former-presidential hopeful, Meghan McCain and stand-up comedian Michael Ian Black crossed party lines for a real life road trip through the heart of America. This pair set out to talk to real Americans and discover the political beliefs that divide, or unite, us as a country. 

What they discovered is chronicled in their book America, You Sexy Bitch: A Love Letter to Freedom, and they'll be in the Bryant Park Reading Room sponsored by HSBC on Wednesday to share tales from their journey. The discussion will be moderated by another of our favorite funny authors, A.J. Jacobs, who was featured at Word for Word last summer. Jacobs regularly puts his life, body and mind to the test for the sake of a good book.
