Ladies and Gentleman, The Bible!

Listen up, heathens. Author, radio producer, and bitingly funny oddball Jonathan Goldstein is holding a book launch event tonight for his latest book: Ladies and Gentleman, The Bible Goldstein is best known for his radio work on This American Life and CBC's smartest show Wiretap, but tonight he gets out of the studio in an attempt to revive that most sacred of texts, the Bible (so sacred it needs a capital B).

The event is taking place over at Drawn and Quarterly (in itself a reason to go), and it will feature a Q and A with Jonathan and a special guest appearance from Montreal Cartoonist and Wiretap star Howard Chackowicz. Apparently there's also a slide show story about dating Lois Lane after she breaks up with Superman.

I'm telling you about this for 2 reasons:


1. I'm stuck inside and rather than be bitter, I expect all of you to go and to report back.
2. I'm trying to save you from "accidentally" watching the finale of Grey's Anatomy

The event starts at 7pm. Arrive early for better seating options. And for anyone like me who wants to go but can't, you can live vicariously through the you tube video below, or follow the antics of the Jonathan Goldstein-off taking place on Twitter (see here and here). Will the real Jonathan Goldstein please stand up?

Ladies and Gentleman, The Bible.
