COLIN QUINN, Overstated: A Coast-to-Coast Roast of the 50 States
In Conversation with Holly Firfer, TV Journalist
ZOOM Webinar Author Talk + Q & A

In Colin Quinn’s new book, the popular comedian, SNL alum, social commentator, and star of the shows Red State Blue State and Unconstitutional tackles the condition of our union today.

Running state-by-state, from Connecticut to Hawaii, Quinn calls us out and identifies the hypocrisies inherent in what we claim to believe and what we actually do. Within a framework of big-picture thinking about systems of government―after all, how would you put this country together if you started from scratch today? ―to dead-on-funny observations about the quirks and vibes of the citizens in each region, Overstated skewers us all, red, blue, and purple, and is infused with the same blend of optimism and practicality that sparked the U.S. into being.
