Contest for two tickets to: Legendary TV Host Dick Cavett and New York Times Best-selling Author Eric Metaxas

Legendary TV Host Dick Cavett and New York Times Best-selling Author Eric Metaxas

MAJOR EVENT IN New York City - June 23, 2011 at 7 pm EST.

"You've likely read his extraordinary work BONHOEFFER: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy. Maybe you caught him on Glenn Beck or NPR. He's the always intelligent, often insightful, disarmingly clever Eric Metaxas." On Thursday, June 23, New York Times best-selling author Eric Metaxas will host legendary TV host Dick Cavett to discuss the phenomenon of fame in America. They'll be at the New York Society for Ethical Culture at 7pm. This is a "Socrates in the City" event.

"Cavett's conversational companions have run the gamut from Janis Joplin to Gore Vidal, Jimi Hendrix to Liz Taylor, John Wayne to Groucho Marx, and all points in between. Eric Metaxas--darling of the book world and much-experienced media personality himself--spent his formative years watching Cavett's show. So, when he heard the TV talk show icon tell Piers Morgan during a CNN interview regarding Liz Taylor's life and death that, "We shouldn't envy these folks," he paid attention."
"NOT envy celebrities their fame? Talk about counter-cultural! "We live in a culture that worships celebrity and I'm sure that if there ever was a big question that was not getting answered or looked at seriously, it's the one questioning the price and value of fame," Eric said. He wanted further conversation."

They want to pack the house that night and we'd appreciate your help in telling everyone about this one-time, one-of-a-kind event. So, please leave a comment, which will automatically enter you at a chance to win two FREE tickets to this event. You must leave your email address so that the random drawing can be properly facilitated.

At least 10 people need to leave comments to make this contest active.

Travel is the responsibility of the winner.

Why don't I go you may be asking. I can't, for I'll be traveling to an AAU basketball tournament for my daughter. But I wanted to pass this opportunity on to those who could possibly attend.
Thank you.

Best wishes,

  1. Donna,

    I don't have to tell you that this would be a marvelous opportunity to see intelligence in action. Dick Cavett might be a figure of controversy, but he always had bright, insightful points to make in all of his interviews.

    He would understand the price of fame as well as any. He carried his own fame clout back in the day. And if I remember correctly, he didn't care much for the spotlight. I could be remembering wrong, though.

    I used to live in Tinsel Town. I can agree wholeheartedly with the stance of staying away from fame. And those I knew in show business never understood why I didn't want to be in it, too.

    I'd love to see this show, truly. Of ccourse, Metaxas is no slouch, either.

    Hope you get lots of comments.


  2. Very cool, Donna! I'm not in the area, but will retweet your post. :)
