Great Names – Gene Weingarten
November 18 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
We all know Gene Weingarten for his weekly humor column, “Below the Beltway” featured in The Washington Post Magazine. Did you also know that he is the only person to win the Pulitzer Prize twice for feature writing? Not only is Gene funny, but he has a talent for finding funny: he hired Dave Barry while he
served as editor of the Miami Herald Sunday Magazine.
Growing up in the SW Bronx and attending NYU, Gene gained early fame with a New York magazine cover story on gangs. In 2014, he and his illustrator-collaborator Eric Shansby published Me & Dog, a children’s book that gently
explores the timeless question: Who’s really in charge?
(Note: his illustrator, Eric Shansby, may join Gene and draw while he speaks!)
