Annual Dinner 2013
Last year's Mother Jones annual dinner attendees got the inside scoop on the 47 percent directly from David Corn less than a month after he broke the story. Do you want to be part of the insider conversation, too? It's easy. Join us for the fourth annual Mother Jones dinner on October 24.
Helping us celebrate another year of hellraising is emcee for the evening, comedian, and author of the New York Times bestseller How To Be Black, Baratunde Thurston. During the program, you'll get a chance to dive into the stories—think feature magazine reporting, but live—as our reporters put a human face on climate change, bring our global troubles up close and personal, and turn Big Data into compelling journalism. And, on deck to help us raise important funds to help Mother Jones land the next 47 percent scoop is the incomparable Mark Buell, leading us in our one-of-a-kind live auction and fund-a-need. It's an evening not to be missed.
This event does sell out, so secure your reservations soon!
Baratunde Thurston is a politically-active, technology-loving comedian from the future. He co-founded the black political blog, Jack and Jill Politics and served as Director of Digital for The Onion before launching the comedy/technology startup Cultivated Wit. Then-candidate Barack Obama called him "someone I need to know." Baratunde travels the world speaking and advising and performs standup regularly in NYC. He resides in Brooklyn, lives on Twitter, and has over 30 years experience being black. He writes the monthly backpage column for Fast Company, and his first book, How To Be Black, is a New York Times bestseller.
Join us for a night of good food, good conversation, and good friends—for a great cause. With feature presentations, gourmet sit-down dinner, live auction and fund-a-need, and more.
Tickets to the reception and dinner are $250 per person.
