Author David Sedaris Reads a short story for Selected Shorts at Symphony Space.

Selected Shorts is about to kick off its thirtieth season. David Sedaris celebrates the show, on the BL Show. Plus: NYC Public Advocate Letitia James holds the city’s worst landlords accountable; a call not for “great” presidents, but effective leaders; ‘25 years in 25 days’ looks back at the repeal of Glass-Steagall in 1999 – which sowed the seeds of the financial crisis; and poet, feminist and author Katha Pollitt discusses why the abortion conversation should be re-framed from ‘safe, legal and rare,’ to a normal part of women’s healthcare.
