Harry Connick Jr.

Swing,Pop,Jazz

Harry Connick Jr. became a household name thanks to his latter-day crooning on the soundtrack to "When Harry Met Sally." The New Orleans native, considered by some to be the heir-apparent to Frank Sinatra, has explored many facets of pop and jazz. But it's with his big band that he has earned kudos for his feisty bandleading and his thoughtful, commercially-viable arrangements. Now, as one of the judges on "American Idol," the popularity of the Grammy-winning artist continues to soar.

Joe Biden: American Promise

Talks/Lectures,Signing/Readings

Joe Biden has always believed that when given a chance, ordinary people can do extraordinary things. As a scrappy kid from Scranton who rose to the Office of Vice President, he is no exception. During his 45 years of public service, one of Biden’s greatest strengths has been his ability to bring people together, even in crisis, even across difficult divides, all the while, respecting everybody at the table. Biden will travel the nation for his American Promise Tour, a series of conversations that will go beyond the 24-hour news cycle and 140-character arguments to connect friends and neighbors around the topics that matter most. Biden will reveal the big political moments of his career, the life-altering choices he made, and the key traits that have helped him persevere through challenges. He will share how the loss of his son Beau tested his resolve, and how he is finding new purpose in a time of uncertainty.
