Olsson’s is hosting Dan Savage tonight, Friday Oct 21 at their Penn Quarter location at 7pm, and Margaret Cho, Monday Oct 24 at their Arlington/Courthouse location at 7pm. Details below.
Friday, October 21 at 7:00PM • Dan Savage • At Olsson’s Penn Quarter/The Lansburgh, 418 7th St., NW, 202-638-7610
VH-1 commentator and nationally syndicated columnist of Savage Love, Dan Savage discusses his new book, The Commitment: Love, Sex, Marriage and My Family. From his partner Terry’s reluctance to tie the knot—in spite of being amenable to matching “property of” tattoos—to their adopted six-year old son’s opposition to gay marriage, Dan Savage takes a moving, personal approach to what has become a national hot-button issue.
Monday, October 24 at 7:00PM • Margaret Cho • At Olsson’s Arlington/Courthouse, 2111 Wilson Blvd., 703-525-4227
Comedian and activist Margaret Cho discusses her latest book, I Have Chosen to Stay and Fight, a righteous comic rage that finds its targets with pinpoint accuracy and is meant not only to entertain but also to champion the civil liberties and raise awareness for the social injustices that are her impassioned causes—among them freedom of expression; gay rights; racial discrimination; and capital punishment.
