Erich Origen - Don't Let the Republican Drive the Bus!

Saturday, August 25, 2012 - 11:00am

From the satirical masterminds behind the New York Times best-seller Goodnight Bush comes this scathingly funny political parody of a contemporary children's classic. In Don't Let the Republican Drive the Bus! ($14.99), Erich Origen and Gan Golan take on the Republican political machine, represented here by a cartoonish (yet uncannily realistic) vulture who desperately wants to drive the bus—even though he hates public transit... in fact, hates anything with the word "public" in it. Will you let him drive?

Don't miss this not-to-be-missed event!

Erich Origen is a New York Times bestselling humorist. His first book, Goodnight Bush, which he co-created with friend Gan Golan, was a hilarious yet poignant bedtime story about the Bush Administration that sold more than 125,000 copies and whose words were sung by jubilant choirs across the country. His second book, The Adventures of Unemployed Man, a superhero parody about the economic crisis (co-created with Golan) was an international bestseller and one of the best-reviewed graphic novels of the year. Origen has a special connection to Don't Let the Republican Drive the Bus! His mother was a charter bus driver whose livelihood was devastated by Republican union-busting.
