Free Library of Philadelphia – Roberta Kaplan – Then Comes Marriage: United States v. Windsor and the Defeat of DOMA 
Tuesday, October 13th at 7:30PM
Admission: $15 General Admission; $7 Students

“Involved in some of the most important legal developments of recent years” (The Financial Times), Roberta Kaplan made history as the first lawyer to successfully defeat the Defense of Marriage Act in the U.S. Supreme Court. A partner in the Litigation Department of the New York-based law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, she is also an adjunct professor of law at Columbia University. The American Lawyer magazine named her as one of “The 100 Most Influential Lawyers” in the U.S. and 2013 Litigator of the Year. Then Comes Marriage tells the story of Kaplan’s Supreme Court victory in terms of its personal, political, and legal triumphs. 
In conversation with Tobias Barrington Wolff, professor of law, University of Pennsylvania

Free Library of Philadelphia – Geraldine Brooks- The Secret Chord
Wednesday, October 14th at 7:30PM

Free Library of Philadelphia – Adrian Tomine – Killing and Dying & Ben Lerner – 10:04: A Novel
Thursday, October 15th at 7:30PM
“One of the most gifted graphic novelists of our time” (Wired), Adrian Tomine has a cult following for a variety of his acclaimed work. Perhaps best known for his long-running semiautobiographical comic book series Optic Nerve, he has also done many illustrations for The New Yorker, Esquire, and Rolling Stone, among other publications. His graphic novel Shortcomings was a 2007 New York Times Notable Book. In six interconnected morbidly funny stories, Killing and Dying explores loss, identity, and family dynamics.

Ben Lerner is the author of three poetry collections, including the National Book Award-nominated Angle of Yaw. His first novel, Leaving the Atocha Station, was a 2011 finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award, and his essays and criticism have appeared across a wide spectrum of periodicals. In 10:04, a “near-perfect piece of literature, affirmative of both life and art” (The Los Angeles Review of Books), Lerner wrestles with mortality, fatherhood, and a beset New York on the edge of underwater oblivion. 

Free Library of Philadelphia – Ta-Nehisi Coates – Between the World and Me
Friday, October 16th at 7:30PM
Admission: $30 General Admission

Covering culture, politics, and social issues as a national correspondent at The Atlantic, Ta-Nehisi Coates has been applauded for his levelheaded and prescient reportage. His 2008 memoir, The Beautiful Struggle, details his father’s struggle to shepherd him and his siblings through the turmoil of a collapsing crack epidemic-era Baltimore. Coates has contributed articles and essays to a slew of publications, including Time, The Village Voice, and The Washington Post. An instant bestseller, Between The World and Me is an exploration of racial history since the end of the Civil War from “the single best writer on the subject of race in the United States” (The New York Observer).
Limit of (2) tickets per person. Book included with auditorium ticket. Simulcast tickets do not include a book.
