Howard Jacobson at New York Public Library

The New York Public Library will host a funny evening with Man Booker Prize-winning author Howard Jacobson tonight.

Here’s more from the event description: “Being funny should go without saying if you’re a novelist, Jacobson insists. In conversation with Paul Holdengräber, Howard Jacobson will discuss why any novelist who doesn’t make you laugh is short-changing you.”
