Until Donald Trump publishes the ultimate account of his entire four or eight or one-and-a-half years in the White House, the definitive chronicle will be You Can't Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story Of My Fantastic First Year As President.. Trump was elected because he was the most frank presidential candidate in history, a man eager to tell the unvarnished truth about others’ flaws and tout his own amazing excellence. Now he levels his refreshingly compulsive, un-PC candor at his landslide election victory as well as his role as commander-in-chief and leader of the free world.

You Can't Spell America Without Me is presented by America’s foremost Trump scholar Kurt Andersen as well as America's foremost mediocre Trump impersonator, Alec Baldwin.

Join us for a special VIP experience: cocktails and book signing on the historic Curran stage before the main event, and the best seats in the house! VIP tickets are $125 and include an in-person book signing and complimentary beverages from 5-6pm.

The main event begins at 7pm and all tickets include a copy of the book. Doors open for general admission at 6pm.
