Michael Moore to speak at UConn

Michael Moore will speak at the Storrs campus to raise money for The Mark Twain House & Museum.

This Friday, November 18th at 7:30 p.m. at the Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Connecticut, The Mark Twain House & Museum presents "A Pen Warmed Up in Hell Lecture" with Michael Moore!

Love him or hate him, one cannot deny that Academy Award-winning documentarian Michael Moore inspires passionate feelings in Americans. Moore is the creator of the most successful documentary films of all time including "Roger and Me," the Oscar-winning "Bowling for Columbine," the Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or-winner "Fahrenheit 9/11," "Sicko" and "Capitalism, A Love Story." An Emmy Award-winner for his television series "The Awful Truth," he is also a #1 New York Times bestselling author. His latest book "Here Comes Trouble" is a memoir filled with his trademark humor, wit and provocative politics.

Derided by many conservative morons and idiots* as un-American, and similarly hailed by patriots and very intelligent people* as an American hero, Moore certainly subscribes to Mark Twain’s maxim, “Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand.”

Tickets - $25, $35, $45, $85 (premium Orchestra seating and private reception in the Jorgensen Gallery with Michael Moore at 5:30 p.m.) To order, call 860.486.4226 or visit (directions and info).
