"After Change You Can Believe In, Wally Shawn reads from his Essays and discusses human nature with a communist."

In January 8, 2010, almost 300 people packed into Friends Meeting House in New York City for an unusual evening. After reading his essay "The Quest for Superiority," Wally Shawn sat down for a conversation with Andy Zee. Their unscripted discussion dug into urgent questions facing humanity: Can people change and how? Is there a far better way society could be organized? Does political power inevitably lead to bad outcomes because of innate human nature?
Their conversation spanned the current political moment, past socialist experiences, and future revolutionary possibility - animated by examples from art, morality, and daily life.

Copies of the DVD of the 2010 event and of Essays will be available for sale.

Wallace Shawn is a writer (My Dinner With Andre, Essays (2010)), an actor (TV, movies too numerous to name), and a playwright (Aunt Dan and Lemon, The Designated Mourner, The Fever.) Andy Zee is a spokesperson for Revolution Books in New York City.
