In conversation with Charles Sennott, Executive Director and co-founder GlobalPost

A team of six American security operators fought to repel the attackers and protect the Americans stationed there. Their personal account sets the record straight on what happened during a night that has been shrouded in mystery and controversy.  Now optioned for a major motion picture.

Bravo's Andy Cohen - The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year

In Conversation with Jonathan Soroff, Improper Bostonian

Leventhal-Sidman JCC, Thursday, December 4 (7:30pm)

TV producer and host of the smash late night show Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen talks about his newest book that is honest, irreverent, and laugh-out-loud funny.  Andy Cohen has a front row seat to an exciting world not many get to see. In this dishy, detailed diary of one year in his life, Andy goes out on the town, drops names, hosts a ton of shows, becomes codependent with Real Housewives, makes trouble, calls his mom, drops some more names, and, while searching for love, finds it with a dog. Nothing is off limits.

Q&A and book signing after the program.
