Harmon Leon On Tap Tonight

October 27, 2006

cowlogoqtr.jpgIt’s Friday and maybe you don’t have plans for tonight. Or maybe you have plans, but they’re plans that don’t light you up. Those who know me will not be shocked to hear that I have an opinion on this very subject. Yep, I have an idea about how things could be different for you this Friday night.

Come on down to one of my favorite watering holes — yes, birds gotta sip — and check out an author who doesn’t just read from his books, he performs.

Harmon Leon, perhaps the most daring infiltration journalist of this or any other time, will visit The Contented Cow at 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 27. Yes, that’s tonight! The appearance coincides with the release of Leon’s latest book — The Infiltrator: My Undercover Exploits in Right-Wing America. The event is co-sponsored by River City Books. I recently posted an exclusive interview with Leon.

“The Infiltrator” is Leon’s follow-up to Republican Like Me and the wildly popular Harmon Chronicles. Leon worked on Might magazine with Dave Eggers and has written features in Cosmopolitan,, Details, Maxim, and NPR’s This American Life. Of “The Infiltrator,” Carol Kolb, former editor-in-chief of The Onion says, “You cannot but be amazed by the sheer guts of Harmon Leon. This book is great!”

Hope to see you tonight at The Cow. But only come if you like to laugh.
