11th Annual REAL State of the Union

Date/Time:Feb 25, 2013 at 07:00 PM

We are very please to once again join our friends at Georgia WAND in announcing the 11th annual REAL State of the Union, featuring local favorite, Jay Bookman of the AJC, joined by Andisheh Nouraee, author and Creative Loafing columnist.   The duo will address the hottest issues in politics this year.  Rev. Dr. Joseph E. Lowery and his wife Evelyn have been invited also.

There will be a light reception starting at 6:30 p.m., and the program will begin at 7:00 p.m.

From birther bills at the Gold Dome to the controversy in Benghazi, to race issues in the U.S., AJC editorial columnist Jay Bookman keeps his finger on the pulse of national politics and Georgia implications.  It is hard to believe this is the 11th year we will welcome him to the stage.

Nouraee is an award-winning writer and political satirist who made a name for himself with his Creative Loafing column "Don't Panic!"  Today he is known for his pithy, tongue in cheek Tweets and his book,  Americapedia: Taking the Dumb out of Freedom.  He will join Jay on stage and respond to his address.

Seats will be available on a first come, first served basis.  At will donations to Georgia WAND will be accepted at the event, but are not required.
