Meet the Author: Jesse Sublett
For forty years the talented comedy troupe Esther’s Follies has entertained and enlightened Austinites and visitors with its political satire, sketch comedy, and rip-roaring musical numbers. The Austin History Center invites you to come learn more about one of Austin’s premiere entertainment groups at a book talk and presentation with Jesse Sublett, author of the new book “Esther’s Follies: The Laughs, the Gossip, and the Story Behind Texas’ Most Celebrated Comedy Troupe”. Several key performers from the troupe will also be on hand to answer questions and sign books. The book signing will follow the program and light refreshments will be served. The event is free and open to the public.
