In Honor of Liana’s ‘Bintel Brief’ …

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

The Museum at Eldridge Street and The Forward are teaming up to explore the classic advice column in the modern world. Randy Cohen, New York Times’ former columnist of the Ethicist, and Emily Yoffe, Slate’s Dear Prudence advice columnist, will discuss our culture’s need for advice, the influence of the Bintel Brief on their own work, and how our problems have not changed as much as we think. Gabrielle Birkner, Director of Digital Media for The Forward, will moderate.

Tickets can be purchased here.
