Seasonal Special Happenings

Journalist David Brooks

When: Mon., March 14 2011

It was more than a decade ago that journalist, news analyst, and author David Brooks coined the term "bobo" — short for "bohemian bourgeoisie" — to describe the educated, affluent, liberal elite: Those folks who think vertically, strive ever upward, and believe that intelligence, education, and water-purification work in Zambia pave the road to happiness. Since then, Brooks has mined that territory with books, articles, and lectures that tread the line between wicked satire and true psycho-social insight. Today, he brings his insightful self to the Ohio Theatre for what promises to be a funny-but-true talk entitled Success Story: A Modern Tale of Love, Neurons, and Fulfillment. His 6 p.m. presentation is part of the annual Town Hall of Cleveland speakers series: Founded in 1931, the organization has the lofty aim of enriching the depth and quality of public discourse essential to a free society. You can enrich your own discourse for $45 (less for students); order tix at 216-241-1919 or online at townhallseries.org. The Ohio Theatre is at 1511 Euclid Ave. in Playhouse Square. — Cicora
