EAU CLAIRE - Humorist James Finn Garner, author of the best-selling satire "Politically Correct Bedtime Stories," will speak at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Wednesday, April 16. The Forum will present the writer-performer at 7:30 p.m. in Schofield Auditorium.
Garner continued his quest to liberate traditional stories from their unsound prejudices in his books "Once Upon a More Enlightened Time" and "Politically Correct Holiday Stories." Garner's first two books became immediate best sellers; "Politically Correct Bedtime Stories" spent nearly a year at or near the top of the New York Times Best Seller list.
His new book, which will be published in April, is a re-telling of millennium stories, titled "Apocalypse Wow!"
