George Saunders | 7:30 PM
When it comes to writing, George Saunders is a jack of all trades...and a master of all of them. He's an author of essays, novellas, short stories, children's books, and novels. One of those novels just happens to be the Man Booker prize-winning Lincoln in the Bardo, which was called "a masterpiece" by Zadie Smith. He’s wildly accomplished and honestly? We're not even mad about it. more >>>
Jay Larson | 7:30 PM

With appearances on Comedy Central's The Meltdown, several late night shows, and his own half hour special – it’s been hard to miss him. But if you did, you can pick up his album, Me Being Me, listen to his podcast The CrabFeast, or see him as the limo driver on David Lynch's Twin Peaks. more >>>
