Ben Brock Johnson, co-host of Endless Thread, will moderate a discussion with Mike Reiss, a four-time Emmy winning writer for "The Simpsons." Reiss will share stories about the making of this American classic and the influence of Jewish culture on the show. Discussing everything from “The Simpsons”, Judaism and comedy, gay cartoons and the state of television today, Reiss gives a true insider’s account of what it is like working in television today. A book sale and signing of Reiss' "Springfield Confidential" will follow the discussion.

Presented in partnership as part of the Spring season of the Jewish Arts Collaborative.
